 What Is The Content Strategy Alliance?

The Content Strategy Alliance is working to bring together like-minded professionals focused on establishing content strategy as a recognized, understood and respected discipline.

We hope to provide the CS community and businesses with thought leadership, information on jobs, case studies, best practices, a forum to discuss issues with others in the field – and other opportunities as we think of them or members suggest them.

Content covers a wide area. We welcome collaborators in related fields: UX, Information Architecture, Marketing, TechCom, Social Media, Copywriting,  etc. And EVEN Content Marketing.

 Why not get involved?

We can always use some extra help. If you’d like to contribute to a project — better yet! suggest one— join the CSA. Or for those of you who really know your stuff, consider becoming a mentor and helping a junior member learn the ropes by completing the questionnaire.  (You can also sign up to GET a mentor by completing the questionnaire.) Wherever you’d like to jump in is fine;  just click on the links below.

Content Strategy courses.
