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.
This is a high volume email group that discusses all aspects of freelancing.
They are an extremely professional and helpful crew. The description reads:
"Discussion for publishing industry freelancers in all lines of work
(includes editing, indexing, proofreading, writing, typesetting, design,
research, other). List topics include publisher comparisons, job searches,
and types of work; rates and (non)payments; insurance and taxes; home
offices and equipment; and any other work-related issues. Discussion should
remain on topic. Anyone starting out in our business is welcome. Those
requesting a subscription must provide a name; new subscribers are announced
on the list. (This is an ad-free group.)"
I have read this group on and off and learned a lot. However, I contract
full-time on-site and haven't yet decided to freelance. When last I read
the group's post in September, things seemed a little harsh to start out
