The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
If this is off topic, forgive me. I'm new at this. I was hired at this
company as a paralegal and ended up doing the technical writing for our

they do the writing, I do change it, enhance it, tweak it, etc. Many times
