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.
And it is true - a degree is not a necessary ingredient for a good
writer - you either have it or you don't.
I was always 'best in class' too and had to constantly read my essays
aloud, much to my chagrin. But I followed a different path and just
fell into tech writing with not much training as one,
after being a PR assistant, then a programmer/analyst and a mum (at
the same time).
I have a good job and people seem pleased with what I do. So you see -
if you have the ability, there you go!
