On those occaisions when I do hands-on work,
"technical writer" suffices when talking to people
not in the profession. Nobody on the outside
knows the difference between a writer and an
editor any more, and the vast majority of people
whose job title is "technical writer" are also
editing, if not their work then the work of others.

Within the profession, I am an "understaffed
technical publications manager."
