Doors open at 6pm. Talk starts at 6:30pm. Food and drinks sponsored by Eventbrite.
Users have increasingly short attention spans and capturing their interest – and keeping it, has never been more important. Communicating quickly and effectively helps you share ideas, explain how a product works and even improves day-to-day communication in life.
On April 2nd, Josh Constine, Writer for TechCrunch, will be joining us for a Q&A about how to write engaging, effective and entertaining copy for the Web. We will also learn how to:
- Summarize ideas and concepts in a few sentences
- Write a description for an app or product
- Where to start when experiencing writer’s block
- and more!
