Good idea. I can't think of anything to add to the list at this time.
I'll consider what the description should be for a documentation-specific
pamphlet (and maybe some of the others). I speak at technical writers'
conferences and could use a recruiting pamphlet that takes a "what's in it for me if I volunteer to help write/edit/index documentation?" approach for
potential volunteers; another approach, not necessarily in the same
pamphlet, would be "what can LO do for me as a technical writer?"


Thanks for the note. Re: ""what can LO do for me as a technical writer?". That could also be added a another type.

There are some who have used their participation on the project as items to put on the Résumés or just job applications. We could also put this as another pamphlet-type on the list.



I do not know if he would respond to this, but Piers Anthony [ ] has been using LibreOffice to write his books. The used OOo before that. He is the one thatintroduced me to OOo, since he talked about Linux and OOo in his Author's Notes. So, maybe we could have some text geared to writing both "technical writing" and "novel" and other "book" writing. Mr. Anthony uses a number of macros, according to his Author's Notes, and he moved to OOo/LO partly for that purpose.

I will email a book editor friend and see if she has any ideas on what should be in a brochure or pamphlet for writers of books of all types.
