Dear Sir/Madam, I've been writing and editing reports, documents, articles and publications for the last 25 years. I’m originally from Singapore but I’ve been living and working in Europe and Asia for the last 20 years. I’ve just relocated with my family to California and would like to do volunteer my time to gain experience in technical writing and to learn more about the software industry. I have a PhD in Applied Linguistics and a strong background in authoring and editing complex documents. I’m confident that I’ll be able to hone my skills in authoring, reviewing and editing draft documents for you. I’m familiar with the AP and Chicago Writing Styles but I’ll be able to adopt your house style if you have one. Though I have little knowledge of OpenOffice, I’m a keen and quick learner.
Please get back to me if there is a opportunity for me to contribute. Thank you. Best wishes, Annette
