STC Puget Sound Chapter Meeting - March 20, 2012 - Structured Editing
Tuesday, March 20, 2012 from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM (PDT)
Stuck in an editing rut? Can't seem to find a solution to bloated, wordy text? Maybe you need to shake up the structure!
Learning to look at information in terms of visual structure is a great way to break out of the rut. To do so, you need to understand how the information is actually used, and what its organization really looks like.
In this workshop, you will:
- understand the role of structure in user perception of information
- learn to analyze the role and purpose of any given piece of information
- become familiar the common organization schemes
- practice applying structure to information
The workshop is appropriate for all levels of writers with at least minimal experience in technical communication.
