Writing: final exams & conference papers

I'll be attending two conferences in May:
The Arizona Linguistics and Anthropology Symposium, and
CLIC (Conference on Language, Interaction, and Culture) at UCLA.

The conference game

A few weeks ago, I attended Writing to Win: Plain Language Jury Instructions, a conference held at the Washburn University School of Law. The speakers provided a tremendous amount of insight into the legal profession's plain language movement. My sincere thanks to all the judges and lawyers I met in Topeka. You were most generous with your time, and helped answer a great deal of the questions I went there to ask.
Special thanks to Professor Lyn Goering, who organized the conference.
