We are a brand new specialty food company and we have just launched our first line of products. We are looking for someone with experience in food copy writing to edit and rewrite a one page sell sheet, a press release, and two cover letters - one for the press release, one to go along with the sell sheet to target potential vendor partners. Currently, the press release is around 550 words, and each of the letters is around 300. The copy between the press release and two letters is probably 75-90% identical, just slight modification for the intended audience. If we're pleased with the work, there is the potential for editing / rewriting the website, and further sales materials. Key skills

I’m looking for someone with excellent English and literary skills to edit the content and copy edit my book. The book has already been through a pilot review with women and daughters as well as a couple self-editing phases, but this is the final edit before the book will be published on Amazon in a few weeks. It is a Mom and Tween Daughter Bible Study that talks about navigating friendship with grace. As far as editing goes, I’m on a pretty short deadline, so I need someone who can work quickly and focus attention on this project over the next three weeks. I need the content and copy edits by Sunday, February 28. The book is 59,941 words, five sections and 150 pages. I’m looking for someone with editing experience and with interest in this type of book. If you’re interested in the project, submit a proposal with why you’re interested and your price. Also, please include the words ‘God’s Girls’ at the top of your bid. I’m including a three-page excerpt from the study to give you an example of my work, and in return I ask that you perform a sample content and copy edit in ‘track changes’ to allow me to view your work as part of your bid. If you have any questions, please let me know! Thank you, Renee Batts
