I was so fortunate to be asked to guest edit The Clarity Journal on behalf of the Center for Plain Language. This issue focused on looking at the fine print and specifically issues like contractual language and disclosures, including terms & conditions.
Whether in reading it ourselves or trying to rewrite it for others, all of us have stumbled over the fine print at one point or another. The issue acknowledges and describes the scope of the problem but also provides practical examples and solutions for addressing it.
I hope that you enjoy reading how different organizations have dealt with “the problem of fine print” and that the issue provides tools, techniques, and models that better allow you to tackle the fine print in your own work.
Consider joining Clarity to read this and other great issues on the topic of plain language!
