Writing for radio
 
BBC studio

It is extremely important to write very clearly when you write for radio because people only hear the broadcast once.

If we write complicated sentences and use difficult words, we might lose some of the information we are trying to convey to our audience.

It is important to be concise and to try to tell stories in two or three simple sentences rather than using long sentences containing complicated vocabulary.

We also need to make sure that we have a complete understanding of a story before starting to write it. In the long run, it does not save time to dash ahead before you are ready.
