Technical Writing ...
is not just creating technical "how-to" documentation.
Technical Writing encompasses the breakdown and re-formulation
of your information into easily understood and assimilated chunks.
Your information then becomes readily usable by its target audience.
Our philosophy is that every user (or customer) from bricklayers
to accountants benefits from clearly presented information. Bad
writing won't help your customer use or understand your product
or services. What customers don't understand, they won't use and
they certainly don't buy.
One of the chief value-adds that we bring to any writing projects
is our use of a "research-based approach
to the analysis, organization, and visual presentation of information.
Our method is both subject matter and media independent;
that is, it can be applied to the subject matter of any industry,
and it can be presented on paper, on a computer screen, verbally,
or in a multimedia presentation."
We carefully analyze and break down your project, reformulate
your content into easily assimilated and understood chunks
of information that the reader can easily comprehend
and implement while carefully respecting industry-specific terms.
When we're finished you may not recognize your documents, but
you will recognize the improvement in usability - and we know
your customers certainly will!
The following two pages show a utility operating manual in its
before and after states. The manual has been retired and is no
longer in use due to changes in the utility company's system;
however, it serves to show the glaring difference we can make.

Our pricing is comparable to others inside the industry subject
to such factors as timeframe and our availability. We would love
to discuss your project further in order to give you a more detailed
estimate. We can estimate your technical writing project either
as a complete package including printing, an hourly estimate based
on the number of hours that we feel your job will take us to complete,
or simply a flat daily rate, excluding travel costs to be reimbursed
