Dr. Katharina Grimm

Full-Stack Writer

Hello, I'm Kat!

I'm passionate about all things writing, language and communication. As an anthropologist, I specialized in the field of effective communication and how we, as humans, can build trust through communication.

What I do

I've worked as a communication strategist for several years before becoming a full-time writer. Today, I support digital product teams by creating and editing all kinds of writing with them – from tiny microcopy in coffee machine interfaces to essays and blog articles.

What I teach

My areas of expertise include

- UX Writing

- Copywriting

- Content Writing

- Technical Writing

- Personal Writing such as Journaling.

How I teach

I love making sense of all these forms of writing, discovering their similarities and their differences, their logic and their structure. In my courses, I always try to draw the bigger picture while keeping things practical and providing hands-on advice. You wanna know what that looks like?

No problem, hop on and share a class with me!
