********** This is a repeat posting from a few months ago. I'll keep posting it
every so often so as to catch those who just joined or somehow missed it before.

I have a file of hints for English majors who want to be tech writers. It
includes the wisdom of many techwhirlers, and I'm told that it's helped more
than one wannabe tech writer get that first TW job. If you want the file, write
to me and ask for c:\ark\alice. I'll be happy to send it to you.
