UX Writing Summarized

Every busy UX writer can save time reading this.

Hi there,
It’s been … more than a while. I hope you are well.  ☀️
📞 “Who’s this?” 

Sorry. I’m Mattias (to the left in the picture), the UX writer from Sweden. I’m 39, a father of two, and a newbie puppy owner. 🐶
I’ve been sending out newsletters like this since 2018. What I do is this: for you, I summarize read-worthy articles, podcasts, and lectures on UX writing. I give you the key takeaways because your time is valuable.  🌟
This is my plan for the year to come:
🎉 I will continue to send you knowledge-packed newsletters
🎉 I will write a hands-on book on UX writing in English and Swedish (I’ve already started – lookout during 2023!)
🎉 I will launch an online course filled with almost everything I know about how to write microcopy
And already now …
… I’ve just opened the doors to “UX-writing på svenska” (UX writing in Swedish). It’s an online education UX writing program, starting on April 25. During 8 weeks, you’ll learn how to:
  • Research and hunt for the right words 
  • Create a voice and tone guide to follow 
  • Write call-to-actions, forms, instructions, confirmation messages, and error messages
The program will be at a steady self-pace with digital lectures in Kajabi, a unique hands-on course on Figma, Q&A sessions in Zoom, assignments based on your project, and an exam celebration on June 21. 🎓 🥂
Doors are open until April 1. So if you 1) speak Swedish and 2) want to learn UX writing from me, make sure you join. 🏃‍♂️ 🚴🏻‍♀️
Bonuses 🕺💃
  1. My all-time favorite book on UX is Don’t Make Me Think. Steve Krug is a smart person, and the book is a fun read as well.
  2. Are you looking for a job as a UX writer? Get “The UX Writing Jobs newsletter” from Gordon McRae. He seeks companies looking for UX writers worldwide, such as Apple, Doctolib, Choco, TikTok, Google, and Fiverr. 
  3. Do you need an intro to UX writing? Got 40 minutes to invest? Listen and learn from Alex Hays at Google. And have a look at this handy guide to put it all together.
That’s all for now.
