Style Manual

This little book is filled with hints and suggestions for developing and improving applications, notices, and other print materials related to government programs. In it are some tried and true strategies for writing and formatting specifically for clients, many of whom have limited literacy skills. Most of these strategies are not new, but we’ve collected them here, added some of our own, and illustrated them with (mostly) real-life examples. They’ll help you develop easy-to-read materials for skilled readers as well as for those who struggle to read.
