​We want you to be Slack… seriously!

September 2021

Nope, we’re not talking about how much effort you’ve been putting into work or hobbies lately. We’re talking about talking to us – on Slack!

Slack is the online tool that keeps us connected

It’s the messaging app we use to keep our members in touch with each other and what’s going on in the technical communication world.

It’s a great way to meet and talk with people who share the same skills and interests as you, or to learn new things from our super-talented members.

Check out some of the things we’re talking about on Slack, including:

  • agile docs
  • blog posts
  • content planning
  • jobs up for grabs/people looking for work
  • plain language
  • tools and technologies
  • usability
  • user experience writing
  • general Friday chats
  • more!

Help us keep Slack active

We’re looking forward to seeing more new faces over on Slack. Once you’re there, we encourage you to:

  • share interesting articles
  • ask for help
  • give advice
  • look for job or development opportunities
  • get to know your fellow tech communicators
  • have fun :).

We’re planning on refreshing and adding some new channels to help us swap ideas and share our thinking about some of the hot topics of today. Things like diversity and inclusion, digital accessibility, writing style, branding, and maybe a place to introduce ourselves or welcome new members.

If you have any other ideas, let us know in the #general channel over on Slack – we promise we’ll be keeping an eye out.

See you soon!
