Want to improve your writing? Write like Hemingway.
Everyone who reviews this app must, in fact, use this app to write the review. It is required.
Hemingway is a free web app designed to clean up the junk in your writing. No superfluous superfluousities. Just get the idea across.
How many of your sentences are hard to read? How many are using those pesky adverbs? How many of your words can be simpler? Did you use the passive voice more than once?
At this point in this article, Hemingway says my writing is good. Grade 3-4 depending on the words I choose.
Use this app, but don’t depend it. There is no be-all end-all in the pursuit of excellent writing. It’s a must have in your bookmarks, and your students will learn to improve, but they also have to learn to experiment.
Play with it. Learn the rules. Then break them.
