The ISTC is introducing a new feature for their InfoPlus+ newsletter called “My other life”. The idea is for technical communicators to write about their hobbies or about things they do in their spare time, which perhaps give them life skills that apply in the workplace.
For two of Cherryleaf’s staff, music and singing play a key part in their other lives. Carol Johnston is a member of Thame Chamber Choir, and Ginny Critcher is a member of Brighton Gospel Choir. They are also both pianists.
Indeed, Ginny is taking part in the Brighton Festival Fringe this month, when her choir performs “Brighton goes Gospel” at Hove Town Hall on Saturday 21st May.
Perhaps there’s a strong connection between music, singing and technical writing?
