If your New Year's resolution was to learn more about content strategy and find new opportunities to network with experts and peers, you're in luck. In our Newsletter, we catalogued a whole slew of upcoming conferences, webinars, and workshops, we well as some books you'll want to check out.
A few highlights:
Confab continues to expand. In addition to Confab Central and Confab Higher Ed, there's a new addition to the slate of events: Confab Intensive, several days of deep-dive workshops, including one I'm excited to be co-presenting, along with Kevin Nichols.
Speaking of Kevin Nichols, in addition to the recent release UX for Dummies, he has yet another new book out, called Enterprise Content Strategy: A Project Guide. This book is a must-have resource for all working content strategists. Kevin's book is part of the Content Wrangler Content Strategy series, which also includes my book, Content Audits and Inventories: A Handbook, Rick Yagodich's Author Experience, Val Swisher's Global Content Strategy, and, of course, The Language of Content Strategy.
Webinars are a great way to learn when you can't travel to a conference, and the Content Wrangler continues to present a great series, as do the folks at GatherContent (along with a lot of other great resources). Be sure to check out their upcoming offerings.
For a comprehensive list of all content, design, and communications-related conferences, check out this list created by Firehead.
With all these great options (and I'm sure we missed some!), you can't help but have a great year of content strategy learning.
