Looking for an Offsite Freelance Technical Writer?
It isn’t easy finding an offsite technical writer for your technical writing projects. So many writers to chose from; how do you decide?
The first thing to do is look for proof of writing ability. You can easily do that by looking at the writer’s web site and writing samples. If you can understand what you’re reading, that’s a big plus. If you find yourself puzzling over something, you can click to the next writer’s web site.
Then you need to check out the writer’s technical expertise. It’s up to you to decide how much weight to give to this. You may be able to determine this from writing samples. More likely, however, this will require some contact by either email or telephone.
Then you can look at recommendations. In addition to writing samples, they can provide the proof that this person can write about technology.
As a technical writer, how do I stack up against these criteria?
I’ve earned my living as a writer since 1984. During that time, I’ve written technical manuals, business marketing collateral, feature articles, and a consumer book. Writing is what I enjoy doing. No matter the subject, I get a kick of taking something complex and making it comprehensible.
As for technical experience, I attended a technical school and earned a certificate in Digital Technology. I worked as a field service technician and platform trainer before getting my first writing job. You can click here to see some of the technology I’ve worked with.
In any case, I can write and I understand technology. I’d like to help you with your technical or business writing.
Please look around. If you like what you see, maybe we can do business together.
