Stephen Gauer at his desk

On November 22, Stephen Gauer, past president of the STC, will present a 40-minute webinar sharing everything he’s learned about freelancing since launching his own company, Gauer Consulting, in the early 1990s.

He’ll explore the key steps to launching a successful freelance career as a tech writer, with particular emphasis on the most difficult part – marketing yourself to clients. If you can’t land the work, you can’t do the work.

He’ll also look at time management, client management, tax planning, setting rates, getting paid, networking and much more.

Join Stephen for an informative, no-holds-barred webinar.

Stephen is a senior tech writer with more than 40 years of professional writing experience. His clients include banks, major utilities, government ministries, hi-tech startups, and small and medium-sized software companies. He has a BA in Communications from SFU and an MFA in Creative Writing from UBC.

The webinar will take place via joinme on Wednesday, November 22 at 8 p.m. The event is free for STC members, and $10 for non-members.
