Upcoming Webinar on 20 August: Beyond the Manual: Writing for the Web

Technical writing is not just about writing user guides. Web pages, wikis, and mobile applications are replacing manuals and online help. The basic principles of print and Web writing may be the same, but you need to engage your readers as you create content that is easy to understand, well organized, and speakes directly to your audience. Learn how with the live Web seminar Beyond the Manual: Writing for the Web, presented by Ellen Buttolph on Wednesday, 20 August, from 1:00-2:00 PM EDT (GMT-4).

In this webinar you will learn the basic principles of plain language and writing for the Web, including:

  • Understanding what your audience needs
  • Writing as conversation
  • Defining your voice
  • Writing clearly and concisely
  • Using space effectively

Whether you’re looking to optimize your current Web content or creating your first wiki, learn how you can transition your skills to writing for the Web.
