if a Technical writer with 3 + years of experience wants a break thorugh in
US technical writing field. is it essential to have a MAsters degree(any
degree) in Technical writing?

Is the operative word here "US" ???

Are you a tech writer from Europe/Asia/???

If so, your 3+ years may be looked on with a little skepticism from some HR
departments or managers?

If not, never mind.

This is not to say that your experience is not valid. Its just that the
binge in hiring foreign workers has only (so far) really hit the engineering
sector and hasn't hit the writing sector.

A masters degree from a US institution will help validate a foreign writer
in an american market. A good portfolio (in English, of course) will help
as well.

I don't know if this was off the subject or helps, but its just my .02
