UX Content Office Hours

A friendly chat with peers in the world of UX writing, content design, and content strategy.

Are you trying to break in to content design or content strategy roles? Or just thinking about it and not sure where to start? Do you have questions about your career options, the role of portfolios, or the job market beyond what I cover in my FAQs? Do you wish you could meet and network with other folks in the same place in their career? Or maybe you just landed your first role in this field and want to hit the ground running?

This might be for you!

I host a free, weekly, small-group session where you can ask questions, meet new people, vent and commiserate, and maybe even get some feedback on your resume or portfolio.

About Your Host

UX Content Office Hours are hosted by me, Scott Kubie. I’m the author of Writing for Designers, I publish the weekly UX Writing Events newsletter, and have been working in the digital strategy space for over 12 years. I’ve led nearly 100 public talks and workshops at design and UX conferences around the world, and teach the occasional class for the School of Visual Concepts.

I’ve seen just about every side of this space. I’ve worked in-house as a UX writer and content strategist on multiple UX product teams, have led consulting engagements with Fortune 50 companies on the agency side at the world’s premier content strategy agency, and have filled time between gigs with contract and freelance roles, too.

I don’t have all the answers, but at this point, I’ve heard nearly all of the questions. I’ve helped dozens (maybe hundreds?) of folks get oriented to the content side of digital strategy, including UX writing, content design, content strategy, and information architecture.

About the Session

You’ll be joining a one-hour video call with Scott (or a guest host) and up to six other participants. Video is strongly encouraged but not required. Please wear headphones or earbuds for the best audio quality (wearing headphones reduces echoes and makes it easier for everyone else to hear you).

You’ll get a reminder 24 hours before the call with some additional tips and recommended reading, and a follow-up email with my top reads and resources to continue your journey.
