business writing are the same. How are proposals, plans, market analyses,
other business analysis documents, feasibility study reports, and other
forms of business writing all technical writing? They are not.

In the classical view, technical writing is the general area and all other
divisions are under it:

Technical Writing:

- Manufacturing procedure writing
- Business procedure writing
- Financial writing
- Government writing
- Legislative writing
- Software documentation
- Marketing writing
- Business writing
- Legal writing
- Scientific writing
- Civil engineering documentation
- Medical writing
- Proposal writing
- Grant writing
- Others

In the classical view, all of the above are known as technical writing.
