This section is slightly different from the preceding grammar section. It is less to do with the 'nuts and bolts' of the language and more to do with writing style. It is possible to write in a way that is grammatically correct, but clumsy or unconvincing.

By working through the following pages, you will not only avoid some of the common traps that can spoil your writing style, you will also hear about ways of improving your writing style. A good writing style is a hugely useful life skill, both at university and onward into professional life.
