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 am new to the list and would like some advice on how to break into
different types of Technical Writing.
You've received some great advice and industry news already. One thing I
would add is that you can get software documentation experience whenever
you have some time by looking into the Open Source community. There are
many software packages without complete documentation (some without any
documentation at all). Try: http://www.ibiblio.org/oswg/
This is something you can do without giving up your day job. When you
decide the time is right, you'll have a portfolio that will help you
gain paid work in the industry of your choice.
I hope this helps,
