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'm also young (28) and have been in this field for going on 6 years.
I started by writing employee manuals and tour guide manuals in my
spare time. I entered the realm of software in college documenting a
language program for a university department. After graduating with a
BA in English, I entered the corporate world and have been happy here
On a related note, I just hired a technical writer intern who was
around 23-24, I have a good technical writer friend who is 25, and can
name a dozen more technical writers off hand right around that same
We're out there.
