Freelance Technical Writer: online help, end-user documentation, training, and website development

About Alia Michaels

I have worked as a freelance technical writer for more than twenty-five years. During this time, I have developed help systems, training materials and classes, and technical and end-user documentation. I also edit technical documentation and can transcribe recorded material for other purposes.

Most of my projects have been for companies that produce end-user software products. I have written about software and networking products used with macOS, iOS, Windows, and other operating systems and for cloud-based applications.

Usually, I work as an independent contractor (1099) and am an experienced remote worker — having worked from my home office for most of my freelance career. I also work as a remote W-2 contractor.


I’ve been involved in a range of technical writing projects — including help systems, tutorials, user manuals, quick start guides, corporate training classes, and online courses for higher education.
