The working hours of a technical writer depend largely on the clients they are working for, organization they are working for and the kind of writing they are in to. Let's see what kind of working hours do they enjoy:


1. If they are working as free lancers which is mostly the case, they enjoy flexible working hours. As a free lancer they decide their working hours as per their own convenience making sure that they are meeting the deadlines. In this case they have to arrange their meetings themselves and there is no general rule for work. They work when they want and they relax when they feel like. There is hardly any pressure from outside except form the deadlines.

2. If a technical writer is working for an organization - may be a journal, magazine, publishing house etc, then the working hours are dictated by the organization and not the individual. However they don't have to work in the night hours as the most of the tasks are done in the day time only. They may not get flexible hours to work all the time but they do get it sometimes.

3. The working hours are dictated by the clients and the project as well. If the technical writers have to meet the deadline they are required to work for long hours, and if the deadline is away, then they can relax and take their time to finish the things. It often gets hectic as the deadlines come closer and they may have to work extra hours during that time. But it's usually fun as the team is working together and enjoying themselves.

4. The working hours for any company are usually 8-9 hours a day with five days a week. However that is the general criteria and it may vary from company to company and also depending on the project situation. Therefore the working hours of a technical writer depend on a number of factors.
