Nix the Jargon and Other Lessons from #AMP17

Each year at the Association Media & Publishing Annual Meeting, I learn a few new tips or am reminded of a writing, editing or content creation best practice that I should be implementing. #AMP17 was full of great lessons, so I’ve Storified a few of them for you to keep in mind. And I’m proud to say that I was one of the presenters, along with my friend Stacy Brooks, communications manager at the American Physiological Society.

Stacy and I presented “Battling the Jargon: Using Plain Language in Your Writing and Editing.” Click to view our slides. I also Storied our session.

Learn more about singular they and the 2017 updates from the Associated Press Stylebook and Chicago Manual of Style at “AP and Chicago Manual of Style Approve ‘Singular They’”—all of which we discussed in our session.

Other #AMP17 tips are Storified at “AM&P 2017 Sessions on Design and Diversity.”
