What is my new job title for a very broad writing/editing position within a corporate team?

I have been asked to design a new position and title for myself within a growing corporate team. I've been with this team in a variety of positions (project management, account management, operations, marketing) for nearly five years and I am one of the founding members. In my new proposed position, I will be editing/producing a wide range of marketing messaging as well as a technical documentation library. I'll have a hand in producing and editing client-facing newsletters, product documents, information packets, press releases, and technical announcements. I will also organize and produce major proposals, product specs, case studies, white papers, and service incident reports for internal and external audiences.
To muddy things a bit more, my current title is senior account manager and I will most likely be keeping a handful of the key accounts as part of the transition. I will still report directly to the General Manager but I am closely aligned with the Sales and Professional Services teams.
I'm thinking a title such as "Communications" or "Communications Manager" but I feel those titles are more aligned with public relations. I have been a technical writer/editor in the past, but the name manages to sound both too broad and too narrow. While the tasks are varied, my main focus is organizing communications is to promote the features and benefits of what we do and use documentation to advance client relationships.
What title satisfies such a broad description? Thanks guys!
