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.
If anyone is looking for a good one-day workshop for new writers or just
to get their own juices flowing, I'm giving a plug for the AMA/Padgett
Thompson "How to Write a Technical Manual" workshop. I attended it
yesterday, and thought that it was terrific! The trainer, Mandi Stanley,
was a big factor in the workshop's success, but it was chock-full of
interesting tips and strategies.
