Have you ever thought about what it’s like to actually work as a UX writer or content designer? Do you want to break into this booming field but aren’t sure where to start?

Maybe you’re worried about that old Catch-22: you want to gain experience so you can land a UX writing job, but you can’t get a job without experience.

If this sounds familiar, we’ve got a solution for you: our new Fundamentals of UX Writing Workshop.


In this online workshop, you’ll work on real assignments, just as if you were working as a UX writer in a real company. You’ll work in groups, and, together with your teammates, you’ll rewrite and design a digital product.

The workshop includes:

  • Working in small writing teams on UX writing exercises
  • Guidance from an industry expert

  • Meeting and connecting with peers from around the globe

The tools we’ll use:
