I am in a bind and need a freelancer that can get some work in over the weekend into the first half of next week. All my creative staff is out for one reason or another with a large workload still on hand and even my my back up freelancer took the next 5 days off. So this is not an ideal time to bring someone new on, but I need at least some basic assistance by someone with good InDesign, Photoshop and proofing skills. We publish a quarterly niche arts magazines (print and digital) that is due to go to print next week. There is a lot of time consuming busy work just getting the text and photos into our templates right now plus prepping photos, usually taken by non-pro photographers, for print. Actually design work on the articles would be nice but I can take care of putting the bling and polish on them myself. Since I have been looking for someone who can work in InDesign and Photoshop plus can proof text+layout in InDesign, I figured I'll make this an opportunity to find someone who might have all those skills although the InDesign work is the priority here. We generally pay by the page or 2-page spread (anywhere from $15-$30/spread) for layout work and a per word or per page rate for proofing layout that ranges depending on the level of proofing being done. Because of my tight deadline, I am looking for someone who can give me a 24 hour turnaround on assigned articles, averaging 4 pages per assignment which usually translates to 1-3 hours of work per assignment including revision time and I expect to have 1-2 each day the following 3 days (Feb 13-15)plus layout proofing needed on Tuesday or Wed. I do ask that anyone bidding on this job be a native English speaker or so fluent that we couldn't tell. We do not have time to be wading through any communication issues. Thanks!

I'm looking for someone with good English and literary skills to do the content and copy edit for my inspirational/motivation book. The book has already been through a couple self editing phases. This is the final edit before the book will be published on Amazon in a few weeks. The book profiles four very different types of individuals (what I consider regular people and everyday heroes) who have pursued what matters to them and consequently made significant changes in the lives of others. The purpose of the book is to encourage others who have dreams, hopes and aspirations to “go for it” through telling their stories – successes, hurdles, etc. of these four, and of some of the people whose lives they’ve touched. Through the experiences and lessons of these four, I hope to counteract (or at least challenge) the adverse effects that just three minutes of negative morning news or “nay-saying” from others can have on optimism and productively moving forward. Ultimately, I want to inspire enough people to take action – to follow a dream - so that our collective belief in what’s possible will shift. As far as the 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 two weeks. I need the content and copy edits completed by March 1, 2016. The book is roughly 40,000 words (comprised of Intro, 4 profile sections with 4-6 chapters/subsections each), and roughly 135-150 pages (Word doc, 1.5 line space). I'm looking for someone with editing experience and with interest in this type of book. I'm working on this book with proven best sellers so this will be great exposure for you and your work. If you're interested in the project, submit a proposal with why you're interested and your price. Also, please include the phrase "purple cow" at the top of your bid. If you have any questions, just let me know!”
