Welcome to the forum. Job opportunities are always welcome.
You might want to post an address to contact privately.
Further, you may want to consider contracting the work out,
even if they are not local. What with shared webspace, free
Skype), and email, working
long-distance with a technical writer is as easy as being there...
If you prefer, you can negotiate your payments based on
milestones rather than an hourly rate. And software documentation
is ideally suited for telecommuting.
I was in the Buffalo area last winter; where were
you then? Does the tech writer have to be on location? Your best
bet is to place an ad with CareerBuilder or similar job search
website. They are great for employers and contractors. On my
current software job, the recruiter found me on CareerBuilder.
