ABOUT THE WEBINAR

Editors play a major role in producing documentation that is well designed, well written and fulfills user requirements. Effective written and verbal communication between editors and writers supports solid documentation, enhances the editor’s value, strengthens team relationships and provides opportunities for mentoring and education for writers and teams. The following will be discussed:

  • Perceptions of the relationship between writers and editors

  • Communication challenges when editing under tight deadlines and changing schedules

  • How editors can position themselves as mentors and educators for both individual writers and writing teams

  • The role that effective listening plays in opening the lines of communication between the writer and editor

  • How writers can draw on editors as resources throughout a project
