This page contains links to Internet resources for technical writers (or if you prefer, technical communicators). I don't try to keep a comprehensive set of links - that would be impossible anyway -- but I do try to select resources that interesting or useful, using my decade-plus experience as a technical writer as a guide.

Please send me email at keith@soltys-DELETETHIS.ca if you find something wrong in these pages, if you have an interesting site that you think that I should add, or if you have something you'd like me to publish. If you find a link that isn't working, please try it more than once -- connection problems are not unusual.
Feel free to link to this site. If you do provide a link, I'd appreciate it if you'd let me know about it.
New additions are marked with the date in front of the link. Dates are listed for three months, so if an item doesn't have a date, I've added it more than three months ago.
I occasionally use a free web-tracking service to track hits on this site, because my web hosting service doesn't give me access to web server logs. It does not record any private information; it just provides me with the standard information tracked by any web server (number of hits, type of browser, referring page, etc.).
I've munged my email address to deter spambots. Anyone capable of being a technical writer should be able to figure out how to get the correct email address.
