Don't Get Caught Up in Government Jargon

Make your writing shine. As Information Officers it can be easy to get caught up in your agency's or department's own bureaucratic language. Dana Michaels and Alexia Retallack, of the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, are sticklers for plain writing, whether it's a press release or a report. They will share practical tips for good writing.
