gold line

My 20+ years as a specialist in "Web Writing & Editing" for science organizations, plus my background in science communications, lets me work with your site's content while understanding its unique needs.


• Class exercises are created from your own material.
• Class content is geared around your staff's needs.

  • In-house "web writing" workshops can be given to anyone in your organization dealing with your site's content.
  • In-house training ensures that everyone learns the same things, and discussion will be based around your site's issues.
  • Speaking and demos for conferences, or in-house, are also available.
  • Please contact me to discuss customization using your organization's own material for both workshops and demos.

You'll apply what you've learned to your work the very next day.

Online demos and hands-on exercises will get you thoroughly involved in the process. Site critiques and group discussion create a fun, fast-paced workshop that will meet your web writing training needs.
