I need a couple hundred product descriptions that need to be rewritten. ALL content needs to be original. NONE can be copied. We are launching a redeveloped site. If you do well on this project, we will probably give you more work. We are looking to work with someone long term. You will need a PC since you'll need to use OpenOffice CALC (it's free) to do the edits in the spreadsheet. Microsoft Excel will NOT work. Please submit your most recent work. DO NOT APPLY if you do not have excellent English grammar writing skills. In your reply, please put, "I read everything" so I don't think you're spam. If you don't have that, I'll delete it. I am looking for 2 freelancers.

Full disclosure: I'm not the best at proofing my own work. In fact I hate it. Spelling: Make sure there are no typos in pieces that go to print or post. Grammar: Obviously commas need to go where they go, sentences must end with periods and so on Brand: Make sure that the work stays within a "voice" and also have a keen eye for brand elements, (correct logos, phone numbers, web address etc) Content: Make sure what is written makes sense. Not just in terms of comprehension but make sure what is written would make sense to be in tech related advertising piece, or blog. Writing: Once you get comfortable I may be open to have you help write or contribute to the creative process. My core clients are in the Technology or Sporting space. About...
