This paper is a report on a technical writing internship during the summer of 1988 in the Computing and Telecommunications Division at Argonne National Laboratory. It consists of five parts: introduction, narrative, analysis and evaluation, comments, and appendix. The introduction describes the setting for the internship and how it related to the laboratory as a whole. The narrative section consists of a daily journal the author kept from May 31 to August 1. The analysis and evaluation section discusses and criticizes the documents produced on the job. The report concludes with a comment on the value of internships for liberal arts students and samples of all the documents edited or written, as well as other relevant documents.
