Having a full-time, dedicated editor for a technical writing team is a luxury that few organizations can afford these days. Documentation quality suffers if no one’s work is being edited. But how do you implement a peer-editing approach, and does it work? Is it possible for writers to be editors too? This presentation maintains that peer-editing is a viable alternative to hiring a full-time editor. It offers several peer-editing approaches that we tried at NetIQ, and it provides perspectives on the pros and cons of each approach.

I grew up in Canada and overseas, so I love to travel and explore other cultures. When I'm not travelling or planning my next adventure, I make beaded jewelry and take long walks and hikes with my husband (Troy) and our Jack Russell (Loki).
