What's on

This practical workshop will teach you digital copywriting skills and basic content strategy techniques.

Who runs it

The School of UX speaker Felice Hawley

Felice Hawley – Content Designer & Strategist with vast experience working with organisations like Transport for London, CNN and London Councils. The companies Felice worked with

What we'll cover

  • writing and editing skills/digital copywriting: tips and tricks for taking bad, boring corporate speak copy into something that works for users and helps with SEO. Lots of practical exercises on front-loading and decluttering text and writing headings, links and in plain English etc.
  • think like a journalist: a lot of content designers started as journalists, trained to look at information critically, filling in the holes and checking the logic.
  • working with stakeholders: advice on working with stakeholders on copy. It’s kind of train the trainer – showing how to make stakeholders confident that you know what you’re doing if you edit their bad copy!
  • plus some basic content strategy to underpin any project
