Felice Hawley – Content Designer / Strategist with vast experience working with companies like Transport for London and CNN.
Digital content producer/manager/strategist on large- and medium-sized projects – typically working on sites with thousands of content pages, dozens of internal content owners and 300+ devolved authors.
The idea is to get you to think like a content designer: from how to structure text and write plain English to decluttering text and content strategy. The workshop will include:
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
