ANNOUNCE: TECHWR-L Sponsorship Opportunities Available

Do you or others in your company benefit from TECHWR-L
list discussions, and the articles, services, and original
content published on the TECHWR-L Web site?

If so, please take a few minutes to contact your boss, marketing
director, or company owner and let them know that sponsoring
TECHWR-L can both provide good PR and help ensure the continued
development of this resource.

In developing TECHWR-L, we chose not to use paid
subscription or fee-based funding models but, instead, chose to
develop the TECHWR-L list, Web site, and variety of services as
free resources to the community as a whole. We would like to
continue making TECHWR-L and its variety of services available
at no cost to the technical writing community because we think
they meet a significant information need. In short, we think
providing these services to the community for free is simply
the right thing to do.

Your company's sponsorship will help us continue to maintain
and develop the TECHWR-L community, which includes acquiring new
original content and developing new features, services, and
materials that meet the changing needs of the technical writing
community.

Where to start? See
http://www.raycomm.com/techwhirl/sponsorships.html

Second, tell your boss, supervisor, or company president just how
important TECHWR-L is to you, and tell them that their support would
be invaluable in helping further develop these resources.
Contact Eric (ejray -at- raycomm -dot- com) with questions or for more
information.
