Some places the Documentation Department (Technical Writers) is a separate
entity under the (VP/Director) of Marketing or the (VP/Director) of
Engineering.

That is the position you should be in.

IMHO, You are (staff) support to the other Departments/Project leads.
However, your 'boss' is the Department head.

The chart I have here shows the ideal position for you if you are "one"
person,
or a group of people (no more than 4 total) Over four, should be a separate
"cost center"
