Hello all,

I'm happy to report that I've just been promoted to Sr. Technical Writer!
It's been a long time coming and I'm very pleased. My new job description
is somewhat vague because we're in a slight transition phase right now.
We're considering moving to XML, are in the process of implementing a CMS,
and are also embarking on writing documentation for a whole new product
line. The Tech Pubs department I'm in has a manager and two other
full-time TW's, plus one TW contractor.

I've discussed my new position with the department manager and she has
described the position as "managing the day-to-day activities of the other
TW's". Since this is the first Sr. writer in the group, we agree that
it's going to take some time to adequately describe the position.

How would the other Sr. Tech Writers out there describe their positions?
Are you still writing a lot?

Feedback would be appreciated.

Thank you,
Michelle Vina-Baltsas
Senior Technical Writer
