Hi Frank. Not sure if you found anything yet but I am looking for volunteer writers for a green business website scheduled to launch late October/early November. I have a tech section that I am looking for writers for. Feel free to email me. ShannonSulton@Gmail.com

Hello-
I'm in the same predicament. I have six year of technical writing experience in a GMP environment, and I'm looking to branch out and find a job as a more diverse technical writer. I recently took a class to brush up on my skills, but I would really like a volunteer position to add to my portfolio.
Thank you,
Alicia Balfe

Try looking for internship positions and/or positions in the nonprofit technology arena. NTEN.org and idealist.org may be of some help.

Hi all, I have 3 yrs experience in the Desktop Technical Support field , and I had to take a break of 10 years due to unavoidable circamstances until now to start working again. I started my own blog in those years I took the break , and had been active until two years back. I find immense satisfaction in writing and explaining via my writing complex stuff in simple layman's terms to other people. I feel technical writing is a good choice for me,but I would like to start somewhere and all jobs I come across require some form of formal training or equivalent experience which I am yet to gain. Are there any jobs through which I can gain any experience in the field of tech writing?
