Subject:Best Route to Entering This Field? From:Howard Sage <sage -at- IS -dot- NYU -dot- EDU> Date:Wed, 22 May 1996 11:57:28 -0400
For someone who has been teaching English (writing) for 30 years and who
has been a journalist on daily newspapers, would people out there suggest
what might be the best route(s) to break into the technical writing field?
Is some kind of school training the key, or should one take some other
kind of specialized courses, or just try for an entry level job? Thanks in
advance. If this is not of interest to the list, please post to
