Words Matter Week 2013

Join us March 3-9, 2013 for a celebration of Words Matter Week! This year, we’re focusing on clarity of expression. The chosen quote is by John Ray:

Words Matter Week 2013


He that uses many words
for the explaining of any subject doth,
like the cuttlefish,
hide himself for the most part in his own ink.

Words Matter Week Blog Topic Suggestions

In previous years, we have offered a blog challenge, but for 2013, we are simply going to offer a few blog topic suggestions. We look forward to seeing what you write!

  1. If you had to eliminate one word or phrase from the English language, what would it be? Why?
  2. Writers are artists with words as their medium. What author is your favorite word stylist?
  3. What person in your life helped you understand the importance of choosing words carefully? What would you say to them if you met them today?
