Hi, I'm seeking a writer to assist with writing Product Descriptions for an e-commerce site. The average target is 400 words per product (350 - 450). Mid-level research will be required. For example, you'll be given the product name, tech specs and similar. However, I would ask that you research the product on the web to (a) confirm the tech specs provided (when possible), and (b) find out about additional features of the product that might not be immediately evident from the tech specs. For example - finding customer reviews, write-ups from tech sites, from competitors, etc - and collecting that information to build the most accurate & comprehensive product description possible. Of course, that researched information would need to be condensed down and put in our own words. Samples from the products we've already written about will be provided, to help provide direction / style / etc - but also open to suggestions. To Apply: Please include writing samples, ideally somet...

I am a Korean-American, and I am translating a 19th century American novel into Korea. I need someone to help me understand some of those old English expressions, vocabularies, and the context because English is not my mother tongue and those old English novels are sometimes hard for me to comprehend. What I need is someone who can help me about an hour or two each day over the Internet, preferably through some type of chatting. The work hours can be flexible depending on your schedule. I have three short stories by Gertrude Stein, and one full story published around 1800. Thank you.

Hello, I would like a native speaker to edit my songs. Don't worry about punctuation and formatting, I just want my lyrics to sound good to native speakers and that's it. Even if you see a mistake, but think that it is alright in 'a song context', just highlight it and comment. Also I added some comments to draw your attention to particular parts of the lyrics. I believe it is very easy and will take ~20-30 minutes of your time. ~400 words. Comment, please, your changes right in the file. Thanks in advance.

We are a small company of just two people. We are software and web developers who work as freelancers. Our new website   [obscured]   has the following structure: WHY? the start page, where we describe "the Why", the reasons why technology is great, why our company exists, why someone would need a software developer. WHAT? still high-level, this page describes what we do, in a non-technical way. We will add examples of our work and showcases here. WHO? a short biography of (at the moment only one of) us. HOW? here, the technical details come into play. etc. **** YOUR TASK **** We think the first two pages (Why and What) could be written in a better, more eloquent, more inspired, maybe more humorous way. Ideally, even those who are not very technology-affiliated should have a positive impression of the first page. Your job is to provide ideas and suggestions for the Why and the What pages. How can the existing phrases be improved? Are there other phrases that would fit h...

I have a 76,000-word mystery novel that has been edited several times (publisher's editors). However, the novel's rights have reverted back to me and I am going to self-publish it now. I would like a quick proof-read of the novel (if necessary) before I get it out there. Having seen a few proposals here, I want to say that this novel DOES NOT need a substantive edit. It does not need a continuity check, or character evaluation or any of those things. It does not need a commentary on the story. It does not need a regular copy-edit either. IT has been edited several times by pro-editors and any more suggestions and editing will just see the whole story break down. The reason I would like one more pair of eyes to look at it is that the last editor who worked on it left me a note that there may still be a few ellipses out of place, a few commas and quote marks misplaced and possibly a couple of spell-checker corrupted words. I've been through it and can't find these things because...we...

I am trying to put together, no more than two page or less, letter that I want to use to get seed funding to start a US advocacy group. I have what I want to say in bullet points but I am finding it difficult to put it together in a concise way. I also want my audience to feel the sense of urgency and capture their attention so they will react. Money is an issue, at this stage, but I think it is a good cause for me to spend something to get it right. Also, if the relationship can be established then there will be more business coming as I am always in need of someone to edit my writing. Thanks Khal
