I need 20 x 300 word articles written on the same subject but in a different geo-location. For example ‘taxi hire in London’ ‘taxi hire in Manchester’ and so on. This content is for SEO purposes. Each article needs to be unique, but obviously there will be similarities with each. So rewording, re-editing, paraphrasing will be needed. Writing something brief about each geo-location would also be good. I will give you an article that you must reword for a different geo-location, and pay for one article. If I am happy, I will give you all articles to write. This would lead to future articles as there are much more locations than 20! Please send me recent articles you have written. Needs to be well written. Thanks

we want a effective faculty who is an excellent communicator, Fluent in English and vocabulary, who is proactive rather than reactive,who strives to be better,who uses varieties of media in the lessons,who challenges their students, who understands the content that they teach and knows how to explain that content in a manner that their students understand, who is willing to think outside the box. kids learn differently, and we have to find and utilize different strategies and differentiated learning to reach every student. What works for one student, will not work for every student. Teachers have to be willing to be creative and adaptive in their lessons, thinking outside the box on a continual basis. If you try to teach every concept in the same manner, there will be students who miss out on key factors because they aren’t wired to learn that way.

I am in the process of drafting a manuscript entitled: The Entrepreneur's Patent Playbook. It is a book aimed at helping business people understand patent law and to develop strategies to maximize their intellectual property. Although it is not finished, I anticipate the manuscript will be between 15,000 and 20,000 words. I am looking for an experienced editor for the project. I will expect two rounds of editing first content then copy/proofing. I will want quick turnaround on the project. I anticipate the manuscript being ready for editing in one week and would like to have the editor lined up by then. This is the first in a series of ebooks that will then be combined into a larger ebook and print book. If the editor who I find for this first project does a good job, I anticipate hiring that person to handle the future projects. Thus, this project could lead to considerable future work.

I am looking for an editor for an urgent project: a thesis in the field of comparative literature. Specifically, it deals with East European travelogues (e.g. German, Russian, Polish, etc.) in the interwar period with a particular focus on issues of modernity, identity, and self-fashioning. I'm looking for someone with an excellent command of literary English and some experience with academic writing in the humanities, especially literary studies, history, religion, etc. This is a work in progress and needs to be completed in portions over the course of a couple of weeks, starting now, and will total anywhere between 200-300 pages. I am attaching a 2-page sample with some additional instructions. If you could do all or part of it so that I have a sample of your work, it would give both of us a good idea of what to expect. As this is truly urgent, your more or less immediate availability would be crucial. The exact rate is negotiable. Thanks, and looking forward to hearing from you!
