Friday tip: Clarity
“Clarity is the most important characteristic of good business writing,” says Mignon Fogarty, creator of the “Grammar Girl Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing” podcast. “Often businesspeople will use big $10 words because they want to sound intelligent.

On time, on point, on budget, and enjoyable to read. These are the hallmarks of Kelly Koepke’s writing. More than once, America’s Promise Alliance has turned to her for help conveying news and analysis of the local work we do in communities across America, and she has never failed to give us reports that hit the message bulls-eye first time, every time. Beyond the content, Kelly’s client-centered approach makes her very easy to work with, and a fun collaborative partner.
