Jefferson Exchange | Eugene Writer Offers Tips on Better Writing for All

This July, I had a great time talking writing tips with Geoff on The Jefferson Exchange! Here's the description of our conversation and you can listen to the interview here:

"You don't have to write like a journalist to be successful in most careers. But it helps, actually.

Being able to communicate thoughts in writing--briefly and clearly--is a handy skill no matter what the job. Professional journalist Mary-Kate Mackey, who taught at the University of Oregon, packages up some ideas on how to deliver punchy prose in her book Write Better Right Now: The Reluctant Writer's Guide to Confident Communication and Self-Assured Style.

That subtitle tells it all: even if you are reluctant to write, knowing how can only help. The author visits with highlights."
