Service Description

Ideally I will take on short contracts and retainers in the Netherlands. Life is not ideal, hence eLance and remote work.
I am quite happy to submit a sample on request, based on your brief, as part of the interview procedure.
While I can do many kinds of writing, as detailed on my website cyberjanet.com, remote work probably lends itself best to:
- advertorials for advertising features, commissioned by magazines
- copy for information booklets
- converting existing booklets and brochures into eBooks. I can do Kindle and ePub.
- Editing
- Translation from Dutch or French into English. Also editing already-translated documents to make sure they are up to scratch.
- Regular Newsletters
- Website strategies and small websites. I can help you with writing for a larger website as part of a team.
Normally I would not take on small, adhoc jobs, but if I know you through having worked with you before, and we can chat on skype or teamspeak, that's another matter entirely!
