How does working with a technical writer actually work?

Working with a technical writer is a simple way to produce high quality documents quickly, and efficiently.

You are the client, so the service is centered around your needs. You are also the Subject Matter Expert (SME). The Technical Writer will use the information, provided by you, to craft a well-written document.

When you have identified that you need assistance producing a document:

Step 1.  Request a quote.

Step 2. Once we have discussed your documentation needs, we will agree on a         scope, cost, and timeline of the document.

Step 3. Sign a contract, and a mutual non-disclosure document.

Step 4 The technical writer produces a well-written document, based on your specifications.

Communication between the writer and the client is important. However, the writer will keep disruption to the client to an agreed minimum.
