Creating effective messages for the dynamic environment of the web can be a challenge even for the most experienced writer. This workshop is designed to help writers develop copy that addresses the needs and expectations of online audiences.  Through hands-on exercises and real-world examples, participants learn how to:
  -  Optimize their writing for concision, consistency, and readability
  -  Retool existing documents for online publication
  -  Incorporate the fundamentals of information design into copywriting
  -  Accommodate multiple audiences with various needs
  - Leverage the power of social networking technologies to express themselves, exchange ideas, and promote their products and services
