The Hidden Benefits Of Plain Language: Jan 24

Save the date for our next Design Community gathering: The Hidden Benefits of Plain Language on Monday, January 24 at 11:30am.

Whether you’re developing new content or jazzing up your existing copy, plain language can improve the overall experience for your readers. In our next session, we’re going to practice our skills in real time and get expert advice from the UW–Madison Plain Language instructors. 

While plain language writing seems simple, it takes a lot of skill and practice to get it right. This session is for those of you who are interested in improving your copywriting skills for your website, newsletter, or other forms of digital or print communications. 

Do you have some copy that you’d like plain language feedback on? Share it with us, and we’ll crowdsource a solution live during our next get together. Just drop it in our Teams channel before the session.

More ways to design together

The Design Community is a group interested in gaining more user experience design skills when it comes to creating our own campus digital experiences. Our intention is to teach each other skills, giving people who do the work of designing the confidence to create better experiences. We also want to look at how our individual designs make up the larger campus digital experience
