Our mission is to advance the profession of content strategy and strengthen our community by sharing knowledge and connecting people.
Content Strategy Seattle (CSS) is a community of professionals organized around a shared interest in all facets of content strategy. We welcome people of all levels of awareness and expertise in all things content-related to participate and contribute to all of our activities, including attending and presenting at our events and developing resources for the community.
CSS grew out of the Content Strategy Seattle Meetup group, which was founded in 2009 and has consistently presented events with speakers on a variety of topics, both in-person and online. Highlights include Kristina Halvorson, Margot Bloomstein, Deane Barker, Carrie Hane, Andy Fitzgerald, Kevin Nichols, Hilary Marsh, Val Swisher, Corey Vilhauer, Rebecca Evanhoe, Torry Podmajersky, Colleen Jones, and many more.
In 2019 we created a Slack channel to be able to have more direct contact with our group and provide a way to share job postings and other resources. We invite everyone to join us there to stay in touch in real time.
