Is there a particular department that tech writers get attached to when
they're the only writer in a company? I recently joined a wireless
telecom startup and found myself faced with the unexpected dilemma of
"where do I belong?"

In the past it was easy to fit into the engineering or development
departments, but the nature my current setting is a little different in
that "development" doesn't exist since our core product is wireless
bandwidth. I'll be working with our customer service, marketing, IT, and
sales departments to write and edit technical docs, publications,
newsletters, manuals, and training materials for both internal and
external customers.

I'd like to hear from other "lone writers" out there. :)
