Technical Writing Workshop

Technical Writing Guide for Technical Writing Workshop - Shea

Our popular Technical Writing Workshop includes tools, techniques, and best practices gleaned from over 20 years of providing businesses with technical writing services.

One reason our classes are so successful is that during the class, participants have an opportunity to apply the concepts from the course in their own documents and receive immediate feedback from the facilitator.  Our facilitator will direct participants to work on their documents whenever a module lends itself to that kind of activity. For example:

  • After the module on tables, the facilitator will direct participants to review their documents to decide whether they have included any tables and whether the tables are set up according to the best practices discussed during the module. The participants will then be directed to look for additional opportunities within the narrative text to translate text into tables and improve readability.
  • After the module on headings, participants will be directed to review their documents to see whether there are opportunities to break up the text and add headings.
