Technical Communication & Content Strategy: Same Game, Different Name?

Sep 15, 2015 · Atlanta, United States of America

Where does the line disappear between technical writing and content strategy? Join us for a lively discussion between three panelists including Emily Diffenderfer, Technical Writer Manager at MailChimp; Brett Howard, Content Strategist at State Farm; and Paris Desnoes, Product Communication Specialist at RouteMatch Software.

We’ll discuss whether you should develop a content strategy for technical content, uses of technical content beyond user assistance, and transitioning from technical communication into the broader field of content strategy. We’ll also discuss how technical communicators can work with content strategy teams to make content more consistent and reusable within organizations. Bring your thoughts, experiences, and questions to add your voice to the conversation in our Q&A session. 

This event is brought to you by Content Strategy Atlanta and STC Atlanta.
