Word Tips

Published Series of Word Tips

After presenting the Expanding Your Toolbox to Make You a More Productive Editor session at the Society for Technical Communication’s 2019 Technical Communication Summit. & Expo on May 6, 2019, I followed up the session with a series of Word tips to the company LinkedIn page: https://www.linkedin.com/company/bookworm-editing-services-llc

These are the topics I have covered in depth:

I also created a video for the Exclusion Dictionary document: https://headbookworm.com/adding-to-exclusion-dictionary-mp4/

It’s not fancy (no audio), but it walks you through the process, which is a little more complicated than some of the other topics.

I presented this session throughout 2019 and 2020:

  • webinar for STC on July 10, 2019
  • in-person presentation for the CNY STC chapter on August 26, 2019
  • in-person presentation (with abbreviated title: Tools to Enhance Your Productivity as an Editor) for AMWA Medical Writing and Communication Conference in San Diego, CA on November 7, 2019
  • webinar for South Central Texas chapter of STC on January 14, 2020
  • webinar for Rocky Mountain Chapter of AMWA on February 27, 2020
  • webinar for Metro NY Chapter of AMWA on April 20, 2020

I’ve continued to post people’s questions and advice from all of these sessions on my company LinkedIn page.
