Celebrating 30 Years of PLAIN

In 2023, the PLAIN Association marked a significant milestone – 30 years of dedicated service and commitment to excellence in our field. To commemorate this remarkable journey, we are thrilled to unveil our 30-year history booklet.

A Legacy of Communication Excellence

In 1993, Cheryl Stephens and Kate Harrison-Whiteside brought writers with an interest in plain language together to start a network. Over the years this became a more formal association and has helped our community grow and evolve.

Take a look at Cheryl and Kate remembering the early days on our YouTube channel.
