And what do you do?

Are you a writer?

You know the situation when someone asks you, “And what do you do?”. Well, when I describe to them what we’re doing they are always interested and sometimes surprised. But think about it. Language underpins everything we do, and with text messages, the internet and social media everyone these days is a writer.

What are your writing needs?

Our recent morning tea information session, ‘Documents That Work’, was well attended by a lot of people who were either self-employed, or belonged to small or very large organisations. What they had in common was an interest in writing, and the need to write a variety of documents. We heard about emails marketing a service, proposals, work instructions, Government policies, etc.

Want to be a better writer?

Everyone left with a good idea of what Information Mapping is, how it could help them, and useful writing tips. We all have to tell people what we do, and often write down how to do it. If we do this with clarity, then our emails, proposals, business cases, instructions, websites and intranets work. If we have to answer questions from our readers, then we could have done it better!
