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.
Registration for the 1995 Region 5 Conference for the Society
for Technical Communication is still open. Payment can be made
on-site if you call in your registration first.
STC Regional conferences are known to be full of good info and
opportunities at a low cost. One-day registration fees range from
$50 to 80 and two-day registration fees range from $75 to 150,
depending on your student and STC membership statuses.
The Sept. 29-Oct. 1 conference is a two-day conference in Tulsa with
four concurrent sessions on both days, including the Consultants
and Independent Contractors PIC Workshop sessions on Saturday
and the Region 5 Chapter Leadership Workshop on Sunday (free for
attendees). Copies of the Proceedings binders are available
Since the conference is less than 1 week away, I thought I'd
mention various connections that the conference has with our
fair list, techwr-l.
1. Session topics include many that are discussed in this
forum: certification, electronic publishing, writing online help,
telecommuting, getting started in tech writing, self-directed
work teams, what tech comm students need to know about the world
of work, and writing for the WWW.
2. Techwr-l regulars and lurkers are presenting sessions.
These are the ones I know of: Rose A. Wilcox, Larry Kunz,
Binion Amerson, Charlene Strickland, and Karen Steele.
3. Some vendors who have been mentioned on techwr-l will have
booths in our expo and will be raffling or giving away mercandise:
Solutions, Inc., Info Access (Guide), and Cognetics (Hyperties).
(There are several other vendors and donors, also.)
4. Some of the conference planners are techwr-l readers, too. :)
