<<I have been tech. writer for 1.5 yrs+. Previous app. 8 yrs. is in
education field and programming.

My confusion is should I include all the prog. projects are just give
one liner. I want to focus on tech. writing only.>>

While I might have a general resume, I wouldn't have a single one but
rather have several tailored to suit the job I was applying for. For
example, if I was applying for a job documenting APIs etc where
programming experience could be an advantage then I'd highlight it the
programming. However, if it was to document hardware then a one liner
would suffice. Those may be the extremes and what you actually use be
somewhere inbetween.
