EBSTC’s Community Service Project

Since 1998, EBSTC has been running a technical literacy project with the goal of introducing students to basic technical writing techniques. The driving force behind this is T. R. Girill, STC Fellow. In our feature story this issue, T. R. tells us how he received some unexpected help from supporters near and far. If you are interested in learning more about the technical literacy project, visit our website.

Also in this issue, you can read highlights of two recent events:

  • Touchstone Awards Dinner (Touchstone is a regional technical communication competition sponsored by the six Northern California STC chapters)
  • TC Camp (TC Camp is an unconference for technical communicators, which means the afternoon topics are determined by the attendees at the time)

If you are interested in writing a newsletter article, a dinner meeting report or a book review, we welcome your participation. Please contact me with your ideas.
