If I were you I would go to the STC Conference in Seattle in May. that is THE
conference for technical writers. Email stc -at- tmn -dot- org for info or check out
their WEB page. Search on STC. Softbank Institute sponsors two useful
conferences, Interactive '96 in May and Computer Training and Support in
September/October. You can search for them on the WEB, too. And if you are
particularly interested in Windows Help as the online tool, then the only
place to be in February is WinHelp 96. You can find a file explaining that
conference and links to the STC page and Solutions Seminars (specializing in
technical communications training) at http: //www.metainfo.com/knowware/

I would like to attend a conference in 1996 relating to technical
writing, publications, on-line help, document design or any other related
I attended Seybold in San Franscisco in Sept/Oct of this year and was
less than impressed.
Does anyone have a suggestion?
I'm also looking for listserv locations or net-sites where I can keep up
to date on this subject.
