Starting with discussion of literacy, communication, and critical thinking, this condensed writing course explains the writing essentials such as clarity, conciseness, and using plain language. Particularly to the investigative writing, the presenter talks about applying greater efforts to your texts due to wider reading audience including hostile readers. Investigators must be mindful of subtle meanings of words they chose, and of different inference that can be drawn from an ambiguous sentence.
Tools for evaluating your writing are further exemplified. To effectively deliver a message, use shorter sentences and paragraphs, easy-to-read font and size, avoid passive voice. Investigation report writing is examined in further details. A useful chart on vetting reports concludes the presentation.
