Explanation of This Directory
This directory was assembled by Winzig Consulting Services, LLC because it's not always easy for clients to find technical writers and editors in the Twin Cities area or in outstate Minnesota. Prospective clients can go through a technical writing staffing firm or they can hire a contract technical writer or editor directly. Either way, however, it's a challenge to find good local freelance technical writing and editing resources.

For example, the Open Directory Project's Writing and Editing directory, on which Google's Writing and Editing | Technical Directory is based, has state categories only for California (20 entries) and Massachusetts (7 entries). They have not responded to requests to add a Minnesota category for the 80-some freelance technical writers/editors and 50-some technical writer staffing firms listed on our site. Furthermore, among the 80 or so national entries on the Open Directory, there are currently just two listings for Minnesota technical writers: Barb J. Goodemann and Winzig Consulting Services (listed with technical writers/editors above) and one for Minnesota technical writing staffing firms: Writing Assistance (listed with staffing firms on our site).

Using some search engines to find such terms as "technical writers in Minneapolis," "Minneapolis technical writer," "Minnesota technical writer," "Minneapolis documentation specialist,", "Minneapolis freelance technical writer," "Minneapolis technical editor," "Minneapolis technical communicator," "Minneapolis business writer" "finding good technical writers in Minneapolis", or "identifying technical writers in Minnesota", often yields lots of hits for web sites containing those words, but very few sites for technical writers and editors or technical writing firms actually located in or serving the Minneapolis area (or anywhere in Minnesota). This really varies by search engine. For a further explanation, see Google's Vaunted PageRank Algorithm Discriminates Against Small Web Sites on the Writing Tips page for Winzig Consulting Services.

If you have questions or suggestions, would like to see your site listed, or have a change or correction, please contact us using the e-mail links at the upper right or bottom of this page.

If you are a Twin Cities-area freelance technical writer or editor and do not have your own web site, we can still add a listing with a phone number, address, or e-mail as contact information. (E-mail addresses are stored in a non-text format, making them very difficult for spammers to harvest.)
