“Hi Jody,

“I took your two-day writing course in November, 2008, as one of four Law Clerks from Howie, Sacks & Henry LLP, along with four Occupational Therapists from Galit Liffshiz’s office.

“Your course had a great effect on my writing and, thanks to you, it has changed for good!  More than one and a half years later, I continue to bottom line, write for my audience and get to my point in fewer words.

“I constantly edit to make my writing simpler for my reader – mostly judges, mediators and defence counsel with short attention spans.  It drives my boss nuts because he’s a very traditional, habitual, wordy lawyer who loves his commas and justified margins.

“Despite our differences, he admits my writing is stronger and more effective.

“Thanks again, Sue C.”
