August 20: Finding a Job in Seattle
A panel discussion with representatives from the some of the area s
most prestigious contract agencies and recruiting firms will tell you
how to take advantage of the current seller's market for technical
communicators. If you're either looking for work or thinking of
looking for work, you definitely won't want to miss this one. (Be
sure to bring your resume!)

September 17: Fiction Writing for Fun and Occasional Profit
Fiction is more than what we put in the manuals that we know isn't so
-- it's actually stuff we'd like to read! If you think you're
destined to write more than the Great American Manual, come hear
science fiction and mystery authors talk about what it's like to be
intentional writers of fiction.

October 15: The International Job Market
There are countless opportunities for technical communicators to work
overseas. This presentation will show you how to find a job in the
country of your choice and get paid big bucks for working there.

November 19: Cartooning and Comic Books: A Different Kind of
Illustrating isn't always drawing machine diagrams and circuit boards.
You can also do cartoons and comic books. This panel will give you a
chance to hear several local cartoonists and comic book artists talk
about a somewhat, uh, less technical type of illustrating.

December: No program this month.
Snow day; everybody stay home.

January: No program this month, again.
We'll all be at the Competition Awards Banquet. Join us!

February 18: How to Write for Periodicals
There are over half billion words published in periodicals each month.
In this presentation, a successful columnist and magazine writer will
show you how you can get some of them to be yours. Topics will
include finding magazines to write for, soliciting business, doing
research, and selling articles.
