TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
The Consulting and Independent Contracting Professional Interest Committee of
the Society for Technical Communication has over 2000 members. Membership in
the C&IC PIC is free to STC members. You must be an STC member to join.
If you are not an STC member and are actively interested in this list, consider
joining. (end of commercial)
If you are an STC member, contact either Bernie Cohen, the STC main office, or
your local STC chapter. Several chapters have C&IC affiliated groups with local
meetings and activities. If your chapter does not have a local affiliate,
consider forming one. Again, the best contact in Bernie Cohen.
C&IC has activites at each STC Annual Conference and other events throughout the
year. One of the most notable is the Practical Conference On Communication
(PCOC) in Oak Ridge, TN, each fall. Contact the Oak Ridge STC chapter for more
information on PCOC.
To get a brochure on C&IC, send an email to the STC main office.
