I have a number of 10,000 - 20,000 word documents that I need quick turnover for (preferably by 5pm BST Friday). The documents are generally written by people with English as an additional language, so may require some some editing in addition to simple proofreading.

I will only accept proofreaders who have English as their first language, and who have proven proofreading experience on Elance. If neither of these do not apply to you you will not be considered for this work.

I need a number of proofreaders and so I will start accepting proposals as and when they arrive if they are suitable.

The rate I can pay is a fixed rate of $7.65 per 1,000 words. If you let me know what length document you can take on by 5pm BST Friday I will modify the terms accordingly when I accept your proposal.

There will be more work available in the coming weeks for reliable contractors.
