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.
Somebody from AMA got my e-mail address somehow & contacted me
looking for input re: a tech writing class. We went back & forth with
e-mail for a while, & then scheduled a phone interview, but my line was
tied up & I never heard from the person after that. He wanted to know what
we wanted to know.
Anybody else out there have a similar experience?
