Announcing Write the Docs Portland CFP & Website

Welcome to the official launch of Write the Docs Portland 2018. We hope you’re getting excited – we certainly are! It’s shaping up to be another wonderful year full of great conversations and interesting talks.

Today we are announcing our Call for Proposals and new website. Speaking at Write the Docs is a fantastic way to share your ideas with our inspiring community of documentarians. If there is something you’d really like to see a talk on this year, submit a proposal on it, or refer someone else who would be good!

Call for Proposals

Every year, Write the Docs invites people from all across our community to come up on stage to share their insights and experience. Whether you’ve been writing documentation for decades or you’ve just started this year, we want to hear from you!

You can read our full Call for Proposals on the website. The Call for Proposals will be open until Midnight PST January 10, 2018.


As a part of our continuous optimization efforts, we are excited to introduce an even friendlier, more navigable online home for our event. We have a new conference website design this year.

As with all things on the web, there are likely to be a few lingering bugs with the design. Feel free to reach out to us by replying to the email, or emailing us at if you see any issues!


Tickets will officially go on sale in January 2018.

In the meantime, you can see our 2018 ticket prices on our Tickets page. As with the previous years, we have tiered pricing to make it fair for everyone. Please buy the ticket that best fits your situation.

We keep ticket prices low so that it is accessible to the widest range of people possible. However, if you can’t afford these prices and still wish to attend, please email us at, and we can see how we can help.

We will also open a call for volunteers and organizers soon, both of which are great opportunities to get involved with the community and also receive a free ticket.
