Write Conversations: "You're reader is a little bit drunk": Writing Clearly for an Audience of Sleep-Deprived Academics

Today’s informal workshop borrows its name from a 2018 University Affairs article with the same title, written by Letitia Henville. Writing for an audience of academics has unique benefits and challenges: these individuals are intelligent, willing to read, and might even have high interest in your topic, but they are also indescribably busy, likely sleep-deprived, and are juggling a multitude of priorities. Join us today for some tips on how to get your message across to readers whose demanding schedules might leave them feeling a bit intoxicated by the time they open your file!
