😞 Last week, we sent you a link to our new episode of Writers in
Tech. Unfortunately, we stumbled upon some PR issues and were asked to take it down.
So, for the 500 lucky listeners who managed to hear it, kudos on your speediness. But for everyone who followed the link and got a weird 404 page, we apologize. It also made us realize that our 404 page is in need of a makeover. (More on that below.) Now, on to the good stuff!
😤 Greta van der Merwe, our UX writing mentor and one of the most talented UX writers I know, wrote a fantastic piece about creating a content style guide for a unicorn company based on a workshop she held a few weeks ago.
🎓 This week featured some highlights related to our UX writing Academy program. In case you haven't heard, we’re currently offering all newly enrolled students a 12-month payment plan + access to our new video course for.
🎙️ Greta and I chatted about how she hacked her way into UX writing from creative copywriting. What a journey and pleasure it’s been to see her go from being among our first students almost 2 years ago, to having her as part of the team today.
Listen to one of our most listened to episodes to date:
We thought it would be fun to hold a little competition and give our community members a chance to
put their skills to use. We’re looking to redesign our 404 page and we want YOU to write/design it!
Simply reply to this email with your best 404 page design and microcopy. We’ll implement the winning design on our site with credit to the author on the page and everything. The winner will be able to add something fun to their portfolio and will get “I wrote UX Writing Hub’s 404 page” bragging rights.
