TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. 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.
I don't think you're beyond the pale here; I used to do work for a local
research lab that involved between 15-50 hours per month editing and writing
reports. I wouldn't say you'll find much of this kind of work advertised;
full-time positions and contracts seem to be the norm on the jobs boards.
My advice to you would be to join your local affiliate of STC, and see if
you can get a line into a place like that. Another option is to call around
to local companies and offer your services piecemeal.
In short, there's room for people like you. You just may have to look a
little more creatively.
Good luck, mommy!
