UX Writing Summarized

September 4 · Issue #9 · View online

Every busy UX writer can save time reading this.

Hi again! 👋
If you live in or near Stockholm, parts 1 and 3 of this letter (and probably part 2) are 🔥 stuff.  
If you live elsewhere, skip to part 2 where I tell you about a great new podcast episode all about UX writing. ⬇

This is part 1 (Tickets are out!)
Stockholmers! Last week, I released the first tickets to my upcoming UX writing talks. The tickets in Gothenburg sold out in a few days, so I’ve just released a few more tickets. UX lead Anton Sten calls it “the Number 1 no-brainer buy of the year”. 😛
Now, the date and venue in Stockholm are official and the tickets are out. Make sure you’re at Tidningshuset (next to the DN tower on Kungsholmen) on October 16. It’s a Wednesday, and it will be great. 
Again, here are all the dates for the talk, “UX-writing räddar världen” (UX writing saves the world).
This is part 2 (Listen to Ryan!)
I learn with my ears, listening to audio books and podcasts whenever I run, and twice a day on the bus to and from work. These moments are sacred. The other day my big ears listened to Writers of Silicon Valley, an all-things UX writing podcast by Patrick Stafford.
I enjoyed every second of his talk with Ryan Farrell, content strategist at GoodRx and the creator of the Daily UX Writing Challenge. The episode is called “Good UX writing is boring”. 👊 Make sure you listen to the whole episode, but if you’re too busy right now, here are my 3 take-aways:
  1. UX writing is still so new. Because of that, no one is an expert yet. Nobody can say: “This is the way to do it”. Also, it’s fascinating how many people are passionate about UX writing. And not only writers want to learn this skill! ❤️
  2. Good UX writing is boring. You need to put your ego aside and solve the problem. It’s not about being smart or funny. It’s not about you. The only thing you need to do is get into the head of the user. 💆🏽‍♂️
  3. Learn Sketch. Learn the software that your designers are using, so that you can work in the medium where your words will end up. Also, learn the vocabulary around code, such as strings, data types and arrays. 🤓
And this is part 3 (Come to Nordic.design!)
🍻Thirsty for a day of UX inspiration? Want to meet new people and hang around bars and food trucks? Taking place in Stockholm on October 9, my clients/friends over at Confetti have put together a one-day conference around UX/UI design, design tools and workflows. 💥
The speakers come from companies such as Shopify, Invision, Facebook and Duolingo. Don’t miss out! And don’t miss the chance to buy your ticket at just 1,999 SEK (instead of 3,198 SEK). Just use the promo code UXWS19 at https://nordic.design. See you there? See you there! 👋
The next issue will be out on September 24, 2019. 😎
The most recent newsletter landed in your inbox a week ago. It was all about commuters, mantras and the next step for UX writing. Take some time to read it now if you haven’t prioritized it yet.
