About the Carolina Communiqué
The Carolina Communiqué was first published over 30 years ago. Its goal is to provide high-quality articles about topics relevant to technical communicators. These articles help readers further their careers and expand their knowledge base of many technical communication areas. Topics include ideas and research on theories, grammar, practical applications, book reviews, tools, and job searching. Topics also include summaries of events and happenings in STC and STC Carolina, such as meeting recaps, competition winner summaries, as well as updates on the Society.

Articles are regularly published on the site and then compiled into an ebook each quarter. Download the ebook from the Ebook archives.
