Agenda

Introductions: Take 60 seconds to introduce yourself, your background, current activities. A good chance to try out that new elevator speech.

Announcements: If you know of an event or a job opening, or you’re looking for work, share it with the group.

Topic: Write about Write the Docs. We’ll take turns sharing and discussing what we like about Write the Docs. Come prepared.

Good Questions: Ask a nagging question and get a simple answer without judgement. A great opportunity for new writers to gain understanding.

The Tech Comm Café provides networking opportunities, job leads, answers to work-related dilemmas, and a burst of professional energy to keep you motivated. We welcome anyone who’s interested in technical communication — contractor, in-house, student, long-time tech writer, STC member, non-member, career-changer, or recruiter. We hope to see you there!
