Handy guide to better writing

Bill Bennett’s Knowledge Workers blog is running an ongoing series of posts on better writing. Today’s offering suggests why short sentences are only best up to a point, and why you need variation in your writing to help it develop an engaging rhythm.

It follows others that cover journalistic staples such as the inverted pyramid, writing for the web and other worthwhile advice on style and substance.

This is the kind of thing that is always worth checking out, especially for journalism students and graduates.
