About this talk

You know all those "rules" you were taught in school about "good writing?" They were lies. Our focus today needs to go beyond grammar and punctuation, and towards clarity and understanding. What works for real people? And what really ARE the rules? Join me, Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, for a conversation with rockstar writer, Shelly Davies. You'll learn the difference between grammar rules and grammar conventions; how readers interact with text and receive messages; and how not to sound like a jerk (unless you want to). About Shelly Davies Shelly Davies helps businesses save time and money. How? By giving us permission to write like humans. Using research-based approaches to writing better, Shelly builds our confidence and helps us write in ways that make readers want to hug us! (Or not - it really depends if hugs are what we're after. But whatever outcomes we want, Shelly can get us there! She's kinda awesome like that.) Shelly Davies Writing & Training. Because plain English has been cool since way back.
