Path #4 to Technical Writing Success: Teach
As you enjoy the journey to technical writing success, teaching is a path that creates an opportunity for you to share what you know.
The fourth of six paths to technical writing success will introduce you to a broader potential client audience because many of your students may work for companies that hire freelance consultants.
Several teaching venues are available including university extension courses, community college programs, writers groups, writers clubs, city and county education classes, and high school evening classes for adults.
Whenever possible develop the courses you teach. You will have a stronger familiarity with the materials, which will help make your teaching flow.
Another venue for teaching is writers conferences, which may also provide the opportunity to be a speaker, which will increase your visibility.
Please dip your pen into the Inkwell and share your teaching experiences with us.
