In 2017 (or so) I started to see that maybe I was not just your average copywriter. While I was busy writing websites, articles, help centre copy, email newsletters and all that jazz, I was also spending more time with product developers and the technical teams to help them design user flows that worked with the copy I wrote (and vice versa).

That’s the year I took on the title of UX copywriter. I was still learning on the job and while I was getting more confident with each project that “UX” is where I belonged, I also felt that there was a big gap to fill between writers and the world of UX. It often felt like the design terms and technologies used in UX were too complex to handle

A bit ironic for a UX profession, no?

Enter UX Writing Basics. It’s your go-to guide to learning the building blocks needed to become a confident UX writer.

Right now (as of June 2022), it’s just a book. A book that’s undergoing its first big refresh, but that can still help you wrap your head around the world of UX copy and content design.

As this site evolves, there will be blog posts, maybe some videos, hopefully, some courses and so on.

So if you’re ready to get started in UX writing, you can buy the book now. And if you’re just curious and want to come along the ride to see what this site will become, sign up to the newsletter.
