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.
Just a reminder that these numbers are the 'median' salaries, meaning about
half the writers in your area make more than that, and about half make that
amount or less. Where would you place yourself in the scheme of writers at
your experience level? Middle of the road? Top ten percent? You may get a
more competitive number from a local job bank, newspaper ads and so on.
