The goal of writing is to convey a message that the reader understands. As employees write on behalf of DGS, they are encouraged to write in a clear, concise and consistent manner – this minimizes distractions and helps their message get through. To unify writing style across the department, this Writing Style Guide is to be used when writing or editing all departmental documents and correspondence. It is produced by the Office of Public Affairs.
