Technical writing is something you see every day.  When you look at a "help" screen, when you read directions, when you read a business letter, you are seeing the work of a technical writer.  The writer assumes the responsibility of making the writing clear and easy to use.  There are many forms this writing can take to insure that information is communicated and understood.  This research guide will lead you to some of the skills and techniques required by technical writers.
