Event description
Fireside with Torrey Podmajersky, UX Writer, Google: Women in Voice Seattle

About this Event

Join us for a fireside chat with Torrey Podmajersky, UX Writer at Google who recently published Strategic Writing for UX: Drive Engagement, Conversion, and Retention with Every Word with O'Reilly Media (2019).

Note: We're asking for a $5-10 donation at the door for attendees to support costs related to putting on local events including hosting the Meetup.com page, organizing the event, nametags, pens, supplies, etc. We will accept cash and Venmo at the door.

Why the donation? Women in Voice does not have the mission of making money, we just don't want our organizers to be in the red while they volunteer!

Sign up to join Women in Voice here, and stay up to date with events and networking opportunities!

Location: 14th floor of We Work Labs
