Description
Content

Whether we write quarterly reports, team emails, or advertising copy, all writers know the fear of the blank page. Keeping Your Reader Front of Mind gives you a system that alleviates this fear by putting the focus where it belongs, on the reader. It demonstrates how your writing is informed by why and for whom you are writing, offers an easy-to-use system for focusing your ideas, and uses an analogy between clearing out a wardrobe and writing to demystify the writing process. The aim is to help you quickly and easily write the text your readers need to read.
