Our Next Seminar

Title: Writing for the Web: Perspectives and Practical Advice

Date: Thursday 25 Novtember 2021: 2.00 pm*

Contents

How is writing for the Web different from other content? What are the processes and principles guiding web content and are there any hard-and-fast rules to stick to when crafting texts for the Web?

These are the three questions, the answers to which we will be looking in our upcoming webinar with Teodora Petkova.

Following her passion for making the Web a better text, Teodora will lead us towards a broader understanding of the Web as a new writing environment. Teodora will share her experience with writing content for the Web as well as her academic findings, related to connecting with audiences online.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • Why write for the Web: You will hear Teodora’s perspectives about the web as a public sphere, the blog as a way for engaging in dialogue with your audience and about a new SEO ‘on the block’.
  • What to write for the Web: ‘Content writing’ is not necessarily a dirty phrase if there are good editorial requirements for content and high quality digital texts which can be found by search engines.
  • How to Write for the Web: During the hands-on group sessions members will be able to think through and then write up: a product page; a blog post brief; and a social media share.

The speaker will be Teodora Petkova.

Please note that this seminar will be a virtual one, using the Zoom platform. More details will be made available to those registering and a link will be sent on the day before the meeting.

*Please note the earlier time, which is necessitated by the time difference between London and Sofia, Bulgaria.
