Great news! Based on the huge success of our first two UX writing webinars, UX Writing Hub is excited to announce the launch of our new webinar series!

Each month, we'll be featuring two new webinars with top UX talent from around the world. This week is Natalya Sarana, a UX researcher at Flixbus. She'll be teaching us budget-friendly tips and tricks to test copy without leaving your home office.

Each webinar will cost $10, but you can SAVE BIG with our monthly subscription where you'll get access to all future webinars for the entire year. See the full list of upcoming speakers from today's top companies.

As an added bonus, subscribers will get access to a library of all past recordings.

Spaces are limited, so sign up today. Recordings will be made available for signed-up participants only.
