Summit Recap – 7 Jun 2018 [Meeting]

Our presenters will enlighten us with their thoughts and notes from the 65th STC Annual Conference in Orlando, FL, held in May 2018.

This is what STC Summit is all about:

People from all over the world and from all different backgrounds attend the STC Summit! And it’s not just technical writers who attend: project managers, consultants, content architects, web managers, professors, developers, illustrators, and policy writers are just some of the many people you’ll meet at the Summit.

The STC Summit session topics cover many aspects of technical writing: editing, project management, usability, content management, intelligent design, and publication production.

Come and hear about the sessions our panelists attended, the people they met, and what they learned.


Panelists include:

  • Jane Wilson, STC President
  • Gale Naylor, EBSTC President
  • Philip Powers, SV STC President
  • Liz Fraley
  • Maybe more!
