NAGC Webinar: Show Don't Tell When Writing for the Web

Presented by: Tania Larson

Friday, October 30, 2020 | 2:00-3:00pm EDT/1:00-2:00pm CDT


This session will cover how people consume digital content and scan web pages and how that affects the way you should think when writing for the web.

You’ll learn:

  • how to write in a way that is vivid, specific, and compelling
  • how to rewrite your sentences for brevity and clarity
  • the real meaning of using plain language
  • how to format your writing to show off your most important content.
