Better writing

Some of our meetings will focus on science writing and editing. There are two resources I always recommend for better science writing. The first is On Writing Well by William Zinsser. The second is the essay Politics and the English Language by George Orwell. The lessons on writing in the Orwell essay are not limited to political discourse. He includes a list of 6 fundamental rules that are widely applicable. Politics_&_English_language
