You're communicating technical information to a range of audiences. That shit's tricky.

  • You never know how much detail to include

  • Everyone and their dog has opinions about your writing

  • You're sick to death of your reviewer's red pen

  • You feel like your boss wants you to be a mind-reader

  • You've never learned anything about "technical writing" and you don't know where to start

  • You have to work with subject matter experts and it's freaking you out

  • Or maybe you just want to make sure your skills are up to scratch

The good news is you're not alone

You're not the first and you won't be the last to feel unsure. I believe humans have some strong natural abilities at making the complex simple. Whether you have a technical background or you're working with subject matter experts, you can feel more confident with the very next document you write.

Who's Shelly Davies?

Shelly Davies

Shelly Davies (rockstar business writer, trainer, TEDx speaker) is here to remind big companies and government agencies drowning in jargon that plain language will get you better results – every. single. time. And she’s been doing it for decades now.

Because, as it turns out, business writing is more about being courageously transparent than it is about having an impressive vocab or where the f*ck to put a semi-colon. Also true for life. When we operate with authenticity, integrity, and courage, both our writing and our lives or more powerful.

FAQ

  • How much time will I have to commit to learning?

    Shelly's a realist. She knows people who want to improve their writing at work are probably already juggling too many balls. That's why every course is made up of short, punchy videos - usually 5 minutes or less.

    Each one has a principle or a tool you can start using immediately. Some lessons have suggested activities you could practice to home your skills. But there are no assignments or tests, and no specific time commitment.

    Watch a video while you wait for your takeout or drink your coffee in the morning. Binge watch or graze. This is truly learning for the busy unProfessional.
