Join us for the October Philadelphia WordPress Meetup happening on Wednesday Oct 26th, 2011 at 7pm! The meetup will take place at a new location: Colket Translational Research Building (Children's Hospital of Philadelphia research campus).
Meetup Topic: Dances with words.
Write tight, write bright on WordPress.
Write your WordPress copy so people will read. Make it short, clear and entertaining. This month Susan Perloff will teach you how to:
- Organize your material before you write.
- Apply the primary lesson of good writing: Use active and imperative verbs.
- Use positive, not negative, words.
- Use bulleted lists.
- And lots more.
Bring a laptop or a ream of paper to take notes. Optional: For a free critique, send Susan a 200-word manuscript (or shorter) from or for your blog. First 10 responses only. Send to [masked] and write WordPress Meetup in the subject line.
WordCamp Philly Volunteers - We will also have a breakout session for WordCamp Philly Volunteers. This meeting will be to help organize the volunteer efforts for WordCamp. If you are a Volunteer we urge you to try and make this Meetup.
