And Doc sez:

OTOH a lot of participants and audience members at poetry jams I've
attended tech write for their day job.>>

And we've had this discussion on Techwr-l a number of times. There are many diverse members on Techwr-l, including some who write poetry, do theater, write fiction, etc., and still make excellent (and happy) technical writers.

The penchant for art does not preclude a technical and/or prosaic bent.
