Ginny Redish

Janice (Ginny) Redish, PhD has been a passionate evangelist for plain language and usability for more than 40 years. In her long career, Ginny has helped many companies, nonprofits, and government agencies create clear documents, forms, and websites. In her “semi-retirement,” Ginny continues to give occasional workshops, work on a few projects, and volunteer for professional organizations. Among her many awards from technical communication and user experience organizations, Ginny is especially proud of being an STC Fellow as well as recipient of an STC President's Award and the STC Ken R. Rainey Award for Excellence in Research. In her numerous papers, book chapters, in-person trainings, and webinars, Ginny has given insights and guidance on clear technical writing, content strategy, content as conversation, usability testing, writing for the web, and other relevant topics. Reviewers have called Ginny's most recent book, Letting Go of the Words — Writing Web Content that Works, “amazingly helpful,” “the best book,” “the definitive book for web writing.” And, as one reviewer wrote, “the principles also work on paper.”
