GOOD TO KNOW
Be your own best editor.
To boost readability, proofread carefully to be sure you:
- Get to the point. Tell readers in the first paragraph why they should keep reading.
- Use strong verbs. Good writing depends on strong, active verbs that communicate a specific action.
- Cut unnecessary words. Look for unneeded adjectives, adverbs and phrases.
- Limit the passive voice. Tell us who won the scholarship, not who the scholarship was won by.
