Let's face it โ€”ย breaking into UX writing is hard

UX writing is like a different language, and imposter syndrome is all too real. On top of that, there are tons of aspiring UX writers competing for the same roles that all seem to โ€œrequireโ€ 3 โ€“ 5 years of UX writing experience. How the heck is someone supposed to find their spot in this incredibly-welcoming yet ever-exclusive field?

I'm Slater Katz, and I've 100% been in your shoes. In 2019, I was a laid-off copywriter with big UX writing dreams. I couldn't quite wrap my head around technical explanations of UX writing, and landing a UX writing job felt like a pipe dream.

But I buckled down, and within ~1.5 months, I taught myself enough about UX writing to be dangerous and landed my first official UX writing job with Fitbit. Since then, I've gone on to write UX copy for companies like Netflix, Chime, Afterpay, Verizon, Opendoor, and many more.

Now, I help aspiring UX writers build the careers of their dreams (and their wallets ๐Ÿ’ฐ) through fantastically-simple education that clicks.
