New Content Strategy SIG
Rahel Bailie has started a new SIG focused on content strategy. SIGs are special interest groups sponsored by the STC, involving other STC members also interested in sharing about the same topic. Rahel writes,
We welcome the participation of any STC members who are engaged in content strategy, want to develop the skills to become a content strategist, or simply want to know more about content strategy.
Rahel is trying to bring content strategy more prominently into the discipline of technical communication. Expect a more visible content strategy presence at the next Summit. If you're interested in the Content Strategy SIG, definitely get involved -- they're looking for more people to join the group. You can learn more about content strategy here.
