A Plain Language Handbook

Writing Samples pencil image

We chose seven writing samples from existing documents to show how your writing can change if you use plain language guidelines.

The first writing sample is from the Workers’ Compensation Board brochure for artists and carvers. The first version of this writing sample is from the old brochure. The second version is from the new plain language brochure.

The first version of all other samples is from an existing document. We wrote the plain language versions for this handbook.

There is a Summary Checklist of Plain Language Guidelines at the end of this section.
