Here’s a great little copy bit from the SecondConf website. The headline on the home page says:
“Three-day, Chicago-style, single-track conference”
I can easily imagine a more mundane version:
“Three-day, single-track conference in Chicago”
I don’t know what “Chicago-style” means, but it sure beats the mundane version. It’s more interesting and unique than merely stating that the conference happens in Chicago.
I like stuff like this because I personally struggle with making my writing interesting. It’s hard enough to be clear and get your point across. Being clear and interesting—that’s a goal to shoot for.
