I'm completing a book project and copyediting with 3 parts of the book introduction. First, I need "targeted" copyediting of the introduction. Second, the conclusion of the introduction likely requires modest editing (it appears to be too strident). Third, I'm looking for a copyeditor to format all of the endnote (Turabian/Chicago Manual of Style) in the introduction. The book is designed to be marketed (and so must be copyedited) to both a scholarly and general interest audience, so editors familiar with working with general and academic audiences are particularly helpful. (I don't need the entire intro edited--though I do need all notes properly formatted--just small parts here and there) For the book intro project for the "trade side" of a major university press, I would need 3 targeted things done: 1) Track Change Edits - I've made some changes and need some professional editing done of these track change portions. 2) Conclusion - The Concluding Paragraph needs to be (lightly) edited as well. My particular concern with the conclusion is Tone. It's too strident/ideological now, and I'd like it to be vivid yet perhaps a tad more tempered. 3) End Notes Formatting (Turabian) - My citations need to be uniformly formatted to conform with Turabian/Chicago Manual of Style. While this is a one-time project, I write and publish fairly regularly--for both academic and wider audiences--and am very open to work consistently with you for an on-going project if an excellent job. (My partner also publishes frequently and would use your service regularly if impressed by your work on this project.)

We are an agency doing work with a globally recognized brand. We are being asked to help develop pages for a product microsite with a heavy emphasis on making sure the content and pages are SEO optimized. The initial project is relatively small in size but there is a high possibility that it will lead to an ongoing stream of further opportunities. We have an existing SEO team that is very proficient at working with copywriters but we do not have a copywriter who meets our needs for this project. Although still somewhat in flux, the copywriter/editor will be converting existing content (i.e. catalog info, product specs, etc.) into content for the site. Most of the content will reside on product or ecomm pages so we are looking for someone who can write crisp tight "technical" copy as opposed to creative ad copy. We need someone who can edit and proof their own work with impeccable accuracy. We are still unsure of the total volume but are roughly estimating the project will run about a month and be somewhere in the 40-60 hour range. We are looking to find and talk to a resource by mid September and we will need samples of your work ( with an emphasis on web copy, product pages, e-comm, ideally for technical products) at the outset of the conversation.

We need 20 pages of content for an eCommerce site, selling wooden toys for children. Content should be friendly/personable, yet sales-orientated (with words like "buy now" and "don't miss out"). The content should essentially be well suited towards an eCommerce site, but the language should resonate with parents/gift givers. We will also be providing the writer with keywords to incorporate within the copy for SEO. We like the content here: But obviously, will need it to be expanded to something around 150 words - copy should introduce the range, provide a brief overview towards the range available and include a call to action. Please apply with a quote and some examples of previous work. Writers with previous experience with eCommerce copy will be favoured. Thanks!
