What we're about

Sponsored by the STC Arizona chapter (https://stcaz.org), we're an informal group of technical communicators from across the (Phoenix) Valley of the Sun, this group meets regularly to chat about trends and issues in technical documentation, editing, illustration, instructional design, web design, and similar fields.

Topics can range from troubleshooting problems with tools such as RoboHelp or FrameMaker to implementing new processes or methods such as DITA or API to helping fellow technical communicators find jobs.

The MPTC meetup is sponsored by the non-profit Arizona Chapter of the Society for Technical Communication (STC). Any dues or donations collected from this site will go directly to the Arizona Chapter STC (and may be tax deductible). You do NOT have to be an STC member to join or participate in this meetup, but non-STC members will pay non-member pricing if attending any Arizona Chapter STC events.

Academics: please come with questions you want workplace writers to answer.

Technical and professional writers: bring your questions for academics. In addition, help us academics answer these questions:

What do you wish you had learned in school?
What do you do on the job that we should teach in our classes?
What do you wish academics would study about technical and professional writing?
This will be an informal, collegial discussion and help session. Bring your questions.
Let's learn something new together next Tuesday @ 7:00 pm. (5/4/21) Please RSVP today!
