Calling All Female Editors and Technical Writers

As you know, I’ve been working on a Ph.D. in technical and professional communication.  I’ve finally hit dissertation phase, and I’m looking for participants.

Here’s the official call:

As part of my current research for my dissertation at Utah State University, I’m conducting a study about women’s work experiences in the field of technical and professional communication. If you consider yourself to be a female practitioner (editor, technical writer, content manager, information/communication designer, etc.) within the field and are interested in participating, please contact me at januarypetersen [at] yahoo [dot] com or leave a comment on this post.

I’m looking for participants within the United States, but if you live outside of the country and feel you have something to offer to my study and really want to participate, let’s talk.



Participation will include two interviews, which shouldn’t take more than a few hours of your time. I will also be targeting a few participants for observation.

If you’re willing to help out, let me know! I’d love to become better acquainted with many of you.
