Plain English leads to great style

a senior lecturer in communication at Auckland University of Technology, praises this year’s entries.

“One of the most gratifying things is the holistic approach many writers are now taking,” she said. “They’re moving beyond simplified language and are thinking about structure and the context in which their documents will be read.”

This year’s high standards prove that many people now grasp that plain English is not just about the language you use. “It’s also about attractiveness in presentation, being engaging, and recognising you’re writing for a diverse audience.”
