Write Tight(er)

A session at Write the Docs

Monday 8th April, 2013

4:40pm to 5:20pm

This presentation helps technical writers transform text into specimens of conciseness. With small screens squeezing the “page”—and with translations costing around $0.25 per word per language—this timeless skill gets more and more timely. Attendees will learn:

  • How flabby writing hurts business.
  • Why “concise” does not equal “short.”
  • Why they don’t need a double-standard to write for small screens.
  • How to tighten and energize their writing.
