Others will give you the guidance that you need. What I would like to know is what is your experience level in using LibreOffice. What is your knowledge of styles in a text document? What operating system does your computer use? These are some basic background questions that is helpful for us to know.

Personal example: I began nearly 20 years ago with little knowledge about the program. I had a lot to learn, but I did. Learning to use styles is very important for our work so I read the chapters on styles in the Writer Guide, learning and applying them as I went. It is gratifying work. You can also.

My name is Annie. I am currently exploring a career transition into
technical writing, and would like contribute to LibreOffice's documentation
efforts. My goals are to develop and practice my technical writing skills
and start to build my portfolio.

A little about myself: My educational background is in chemical engineering,
during which I spent my summers on a variety of research projects. I moved
into business technology consulting as a new grad when I realized I am not
suited for creating technology. While in consulting, I had the opportunity
to lead and execute the documentation effort on a software implementation,
and have slowly come to orient towards a career in technical writing. I
enjoy being able to combine technical knowledge with user-friendly design,
pressing flowers, and trying new cooking recipes.

I appreciate any guidance on the best way for a beginner to contribute, and
can commit to 4 hours per week at this time. If it makes sense, I intend to
start with reviewing the Help contents and User Guides, researching for
improvements, and adding in artwork. As I become more familiar with the
topics available, I intend to start writing and editing.

Looking forward to learning from and working with you all!

Kind regards,

Annie Nguyen
