How to get help with headline writing

Are you looking for help with writing headlines for digital media? I’m leading a NewsU webinar on that topic next month. Here are the details, in Q&A form:

Q. What’s a webinar?

A. It’s a live, online meeting. A moderator and I will make a slideshow presentation and post a few poll questions for you. We will answer your questions as we go along and at the end of the meeting. It will be fun and informal.

Q. What will this webinar cover?

A. “Writing Headlines for Digital and Mobile Media” will cover the basics of what makes an effective headline, trends in digital headline writing and the latest in search engine optimization. It’s intended for anyone who writes headlines for news websites, blogs and apps.

Q. When will it take place?

A. Thursday, Dec. 5, at 2 p.m. EST. It will last about an hour. The webinar will be archived if you want to watch it at another time.

Q. How much does it cost?

A. The cost is $29.95. If you are a member of the American Copy Editors Society, you get a discount at $9.95. Group rates are also available.

Q. How do I sign up?

A. Go this NewsU page and click on “enroll now.” If you want to get the ACES discount and are not a member, you can join that great organization via this page on its site.

Let me know if you have more questions. I hope to see you there.

UPDATE: The webinar was, I hope, a success, with about 175 people logged in. I had a lot of fun. Thanks all for attending virtually and asking great questions, and thanks to NewsU for sponsoring this webinar. If you missed it, check out this Storify page for a recap.
