After my first year writing documentation for a software company I was
asked to manage the writing team (mostly because I started six months
before any of the other writers). I was also asked to come up with a
new title for myself. Since I had only been writing for approximately a
year, using the term "Senior" seemed a little misleading.
After considering my overall responsibilities (which included far more
than just writing) I decided on Documentation Manager. 'Cause that's
what I do. I don't really like the title, but it seems most appropriate.
Good luck finding a title that works for you.
