Cross Team Communication for Technical Writers

Think bigger. Having tech writers be first-class team members doesn’t just mean “let them hear what’s being discussed at your meetings”. Tech writers, at least good ones, understand user needs, usability issues, interface design, how what this team is doing might interact with other features, and more. If your tech writers aren’t participating in design reviews, helping to craft APIs and user interfaces, and helping to develop meaningful examples, you’re denying your dev team important input.
