Climate Migration on Five Levels
This was an interesting challenge - The Storythings team challenged me to explain the issue of climate migration for five different audiences - a child, a teenager, a college student, a postgrad student, and an expert - in response to a short story by Australian indigenous writer Ellen van Neerven.
It was an neat exercise, and harder than I was expecting. I started by writing the expert article, then simplified it gradually down to child level, then went back up the detail scale again making refinements based on the simplifications I'd done that were worth keeping. If you have the time, I think it's a great way of ensuring that something you write is accessible to a broad audience.
