Hey, all! I am Greta Boller Buskirk, a technical writer located in the Washington, D.C. area. Since studying English in college, I have enjoyed writing engaging and approachable prose for all audiences. After exploring this passion in the worlds of publishing and tutoring, I transitioned the knowledge to IT technical writing. As a technical writer, I have not only authored documentation for technicians and management, but developed processes to create and restructure technical writing programs. For more about my professional background, please visit my LinkedIn. Interested in learning more about my personal journey to techcomm? Read my post here.
In my spare time, I fancy myself a poet (though I hardly have spare time lately). My work was recently published in Kindred.
You’ll read a lot about my work and experiences on this blog, though I may not mention them directly. Every post is inspired by a position I held or struggles I faced trying to break into the technical writing world and stay there. Lessons I learned through mentors or just good old fashioned trial and error are put together for you to read and learn from on your own. Have a lesson you learned the hard way? or through a mentor you trust? Visit the about page to read my guidelines for guest submissions.
