Speeches, presentations, podcasts, webinars, videos and other spoken materials need special consideration when you’re writing or editing them. The standard tone, style, punctuation and grammar rules don’t always apply. This session will help writers and editors create better spoken content by reviewing the differences between printed and spoken materials in detail. Writers and editors who work on spoken content will learn practical tips for identifying and fixing issues, and those who do not yet work in this area will gain the tools to expand into a new niche.
