WHATโ€™S INSIDE

Issue #128 (April 21st, 2021)
  • Are we human, or are we chatbot? 🤖
  • UX writing is like being a magician 🧙โ€โ™‚๏ธ
  • A new content design book 📚
  • Yes Maybe No 🤷



ONLINE EVENTS

🤖 If youโ€™re a UX writer thinking about breaking into conversation and chatbot design, weโ€™ve got an event for you!

In this workshop, Eran and Miri from CocoHub will show you how easy it can be. Youโ€™ll get to know an intuitive tool that lets you build the simplest form of conversation โ€” what you would say, what the response will be, and what you will do with the gathered information โ€” and spares you the technical part.

Join us to understand how easy it is to be part of the conversational AI revolution!



โœ๏ธ Happy and honored to be a part of this free UX writing event by Crunch Panel. Weโ€™ll be talking about:

  • A framework to align UX content voice to business principles
  • How and when to include UX writers in the UX design and development process
  • Methods for measuring the impact of content on customer and business goals
  • And more

Hope to see you there.

PODCAST
🧙โ€โ™‚๏ธ In this episode of Writers in Tech, I spoke with Jessica Drew of CarGurus about how AI will influence UX writersโ€™ role, why many companies are behind when it comes to UX writing, and how working as a UX writer is like being a magician.

A BOOK! (Remember those?)
📚 Great content doesnโ€™t happen in a vacuum. It gets bogged down in teams, organizations, silos, and process. In Cultivating Content Design, Beth Dunn helps you break the vacuum seal and bring unity and joy back to content. Free sample chapter available.
