May: Tactical Writing – Crafting Emails That Get Useful Responses

Technical writing is inherently collaborative, especially when it comes to our Subject Matter Experts. And, for better or worse, much of this collaboration happens using everyone’s least favorite medium: email.

This session offers practical approaches to apply minimalism to your communications, leading to clearer, less painful, more productive email exchanges. We’ll cover all-purpose tips for effective requests and reminders, plus more specialized strategies to get what you need from the Very Literal Technician, the Chronic Skimmer, or the Self-Appointed Author.

Our speaker, Amelia Lax, is Knowledge Editor at Sub-Zero Group Inc. in Madison, WI.

Join us for our first in-person speaker event since February 2020, with appetizers and drinks at the historic Haymarket Pub & Brewery, within walking distance of Metra stations in Chicago’s West Loop.
