These profiles of local technical writers were produced by students at the University of Alabama in Huntsville as a way to learn more about the field of technical writing and the opportunities available in Huntsville. The profiles capture a day in the life of these writers, the challenges and benefits of their jobs, and their advice for entering the field. We hope these profiles give you insight on the work technical writers do.
