Hello Elance, My company helps experts, coaches, consultants and small business owners write and publish their own inspirational books, usually in the personal development & business genres. Coming up on this Monday 31st August, we have 3 manuscripts (approx 20,000-35,000 words each) that require editing and proofing. Specifically, we want you to look for: - spelling, grammar and tenses - highlight parts that don't make sense or need author input It is important to us that we preserve the natural voice of our authors. Many of them write their books in a very conversational style and tone and this is ok. The majority of them are not professional writers, and that is ok too. Think of this project as if you are coming in to polish up the shiny diamond to make it even more shiny! STAGE ONE You will receive the manuscripts in a Word Document. Our deadline for this section of the work is Friday 4th September, because then we send our manuscripts back to our authors for their co...

This is a little different than most jobs, since if we work well together, it will be ongoing forever. I have 3 blogs and make 1-2 posts to each blog every week. Each post is the size of a small article, perhaps 1-3 pages in length. I need a very good proofreader who I can email a blog post to at any time, and have that proofreader turn that post back around to me, proofed, within 24 hours (or sooner). I need this service 7 days a week. To be clear, that doesn't mean I'll be sending you stuff every day 7 days a week. It just means you could receive stuff from me any day of the week, and I'll need a 24 hour turnaround time on it even if you receive it on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. The total weekly workload will be about 5 blog posts at 1-3 pages in length per week. We can do hourly billing to start, and if we work well together I'd like to just pay you a flat fee per month once you're accustomed to the workflow. The good news here is that I will seriously use you "forev...

This particular job is to carefully proofread, edit and correct as necessary, a small subsection of our online dictionary database, specifically, the sample sentences given for each word and definition. EFL Technologies dictionary database was created to help second language learners of English to learn important words and phrases by providing definitions and sample sentences in easy to understand English. The dictionary includes definitions, part of speech and sample sentences for thousands of the most important and frequency words of the English language, with a modified definition and sample sentence to match each inflection of the word. Most of the words, definitions and sample sentences have already been written, and all the definitions have already had a professional level edit, but before releasing the dictionary to the public, we also need a professional level proofread and edit of the sample sentences for each word (and inflection of the word). In this project we would need...

I'm a local (Maryland) author working on the second release of my first book series - "Unspoken". Although my first published piece was a "prequel", and slightly under 100 pgs., it received a great response from its target market, and I am looking to improve that response with book #2 ("Ascension"). I have a first-round proofer, that does very well to maintain my concept and approach, but I'd like a complete Editorial service for this release to ensure and maintain quality. *Editor/Proofer must Read Prequel (94 Pgs.) prior to accepting job.   [obscured]

I've written a short book about my experiences in corporate America. It includes 13 strategies for surviving (or leaving) the corporate world. The book describes my experiences and how and why I left my corporate job. The book takes a bit of a light-hearted approach to business and provides overall advice that applies to both the corporate world and life in general. It's about 13 pages single spaced typing.

for a fitness magazine, I would like someone who can make my thoughts coherant, easy to read, with copy and content editing. It should sound like my own voice as well. I do not want it to be full ghost written either, although I'm open to re writing or adding in sentences that makes sense, and also deleating anything that sounds redundant or uncessasry.

I am a Spanish speaking independent learner without a clear idea of my strengths and deficiencies in the English language. My English level is considered to be advanced ESL. I am looking to hire someone flexible that can: - Proofread work related documents (mostly Microsoft word, occasionally power point) - give me actionable feedback about my grammar/ punctuation etc. My plan is to use this feedback to study/ practice. My goal with this is to use my day to day writing responsibilities as a way to improve my writing skills. My documents will likely have technical medical terms and will contain work material that should remain confidential. Usually no longer than 10 pages and no more than 1-3 documents per month. Expected turn around will be 48 to 72 hours, although this can be arranged depending on the circumstances. ESL teaching is not required.

We are a fast growing spirituality and alternative health content site that sprung forth from a hit documentary. Our blog topics range from herbalism to permaculture techniques to shamanism, but they all shares one common thread - the writing style is extremely personal and vulnerable, while also being fun and inviting. We currently have 5 contributing bloggers who each post 1 article per week and we are about to bring on 5 additional writers. We are looking for someone to edit all the blog posts that are being submitted each week by our contributors and post them to Wordpress for us to review once they are finished. We have a very detailed editorial guideline for the blog that can be used as a template for each post that comes in. We hold each of our writers to a very high standard, and are very careful about posting only top notch work on our site. We are looking for someone who has a passion for our subject matter (herbalism, natural health, spirituality, shamanism) and wh...
