Tips for fast-paced business writing for the Web

J. Banaszynski

The fast-paced world of the Web places special demands on writers and editors. That’s especially important when posting fast-breaking news or handling complex information – numbers, cumbersome titles, misunderstood terms, precise attribution. This Webinar will help writers and editors write with clarity, efficiency, brevity and transparency. Participants will study story approaches and language use that enhance the readability of Web copy.

On Feb. 8-9, 2010, Pulitzer Prize-winner Jacqui Banaszynski shared ways to write complex, breaking business news stories for the Web. Banaszynski, the Knight Chair in Editing and Reynolds Fellow at the University of Missouri School of Journalism, is a regular presenter at APME NewsTrain and the National Writers Workshops. She has taught at American Press Institute, the University of Kansas and the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, and has served as a Pulitzer juror.
