Event Details

The Portland Content Strategy Meetup is excited to bring to our city Rahel Bailie for this day-long workshop Sat., Oct. 8. Whether you're a practicing content strategist or are interested in finding out more about this emerging field, you'll learn new ways to look at best practices, walk through hands-on exercises facilitated by Rahel, and come away with new tools you can immediately use in your work.


"All content should be treated strategically." So says Rahel Bailie, and she should know.

This workshop is for you ...

  • if you work in marketing or are otherwise involved with pre-sale content
  • if you work in technical communication or are otherwise involved with post-sale content
  • if your organization isn't (yet) treating all of its content strategically and you want to be part of the move in that direction
  • if you're curious about what content strategy looks like in practice (what happens, in what order, and why)
  • if you wonder how content strategy and user experience interrelate
  • if you wonder what types of deliverables content strategists produce
  • if you'd like to try a miniproject for yourself under the guidance of an expert





  • to develop a strategic content plan
  • to leverage content in compelling ways
  • to identify the key deliverables of a content strategy
  • to prepare specific deliverables in the context of a content strategy
  • to become a content advocate on a user experience team


Participants will be able to make a business case for investing in content strategy, will have a base process for implementing a content strategy in their workplaces, and will take home a series of work templates to get them started.



A laptop. We will use templates to work through real-life challenges. Be prepared for an interactive experience.
