Writing Explained

Readers who have ever felt like their writing skills might be out of practice or who sometimes struggle with certain words, sentences, or writing formats may benefit from the refresher resources available from Writing Explained. Writing Explained offers free materials for anyone who seeks to brush up on grammar, style, literary terms, literature, and more. Among the resources available on the page linked above are an alphabetical list of common "Confusing Words" in English (e.g., "Toward versus Towards"). Each entry explains the difference, offers examples, and summarizes the correct usage. Other resources include the guide "How to Create a Blog," a drop-down menu of Style Guides that includes AP, Chicago, MLA, and APA, and dictionaries of abbreviations, grammar terms, literary terms, idioms, and spelling. Readers may also sign up for an email newsletter to get a complimentary e-book, 35 Mistakes to Avoid in Your Writing. Writing Explained was created by Jordan Conrad.
