When you are preparing your Technical Writer cover letter you have to make sure that you do not rehash your resume because you do not want to write a duplicate document. A cover letter is used to complement a resume which is why the information that goes into it is slightly different from that in a Technical Writer resume. Here is a sample cover letter for a Technical Writer that you can use to write your own.
