About Kay.

INSPIRED BY CREATIVITY.

Hi, I’m Kay Scott, a California-based documentation specialist, senior technical writer, and experienced technical editor.

I have now worked as a technical writer for more than 10 years. I have ample experience creating and maintaining help systems, user guides, release notes, quick reference cards, content for support web sites, and instructional design and marketing content for large companies including Green Dot, Edwards Lifesciences, Design Solutions USA, and many more. I’ve earned several awards along the way including an Intercontinental Award of Writing Excellence.

I have served in leadership positions for writing as well as API documentation. I also regularly present content— for small businesses and major corporations —at local and international conferences.

GREAT WRITING MATTERS.

As a technical writer with more than 10 years of experience, I’ve created thousands of deliverables that make it easier for end-users and employees to use technology.
01. Technical Writing.

My primary task is to convey information to another person or party in the most clear and effective manner possible.

02. Content Writing.

As a content writer I produce engaging content for use online. I create Internet-savvy content for individuals and companies such as articles, blog posts, and other forms of written Web material.

03. API Documentation.

I have years of experience writing technical content, containing instructions about how to effectively use and integrate with an API. … I am prolific as using API description formats like the OpenAPI/Swagger. 

04. Editing & Proof Reading.

I utilize my superior eye for attention to detail to proofread, edit, and make corrects to errors in writing, such as grammatical, spelling, punctuation and other language mistakes.

THE USER MUST COME FIRST.

What makes ME a great tech writer? I know being a writer seems easy and straightforward but it’s not. There are many hidden obstacles in being a technical writer, and, as for being a good one – there’s even more. If you are an employer looking for a new employee/contractor, you can use my checklist to see if I’m a good fit or not.
