Is it possible to type a word and then move the letters closer together?

No it didn't work on a word typed in one go, it just moves the whole word.

Hi Ruth,

Here is a video by Heathenx on manual kerning and a written post is on my blog http://cuttingtime.blogspot.com/2009/05/text-kerning-in-inkscape.html

If you are using Inkscape version 0.47 or 0.48 you can do it another way as shown here http://www.inkscapecuttingdesign.com/smf/index.php?topic=57.0 however, this method means you cannot change the font after object to path.
