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.
Few people plan to become technical writers. They cross over into the
field from all kinds of
backgrounds. If someone doesn't train people willing to do a job so many
others don't care for, then the pool dries up.
Really? I don't know of many really fine technical writers who didn't end
up in the field out of love for the craft.
