The Writing Edge for Business Writers: 5/22/15

May 22, 2015 | Better Writing

You’re a businessperson. You may not think of yourself as a writer, but you know that writing well can boost your results and your career. Naturally, you want to do better. Every week I point you to one or two pieces that I think will teach you something or spark an idea or two. This week I’m pointing you to pieces on tips for better business writing, copyright law, and a short business reading list.

From Sarah Townsend: 10 bitesized tips for better business writing

From Mark Trenner: What You Don’t Know About Copyright Can Hurt You

“Since it can be difficult to determine whether or not you’re committing copyright infringement, you may violate someone else’s copyright even if you don’t intend to.”

From Geoffrey James: 7 Short Books Worth More Than an MBA

“You can spend $250,000 to get an MBA or spend a weekend reading these classics. Your choice.”
