Dear Editor, I am writing to enquire about editing and proof-reading of a PhD thesis. This thesis is about 300 pages and will be sent to you in September. I’d like to have professional and heavy editing. I would greatly appreciate it if you could provide me with a quote and also a sample editing? If yes, I will email you one or two pages for your consideration. Looking forward to hearing from you. Thank you!!

It's a self help book that talks about teenage pregnancy within the urban community and how to overcome the stereotypes and obtain success. As far as the editing goes I'm on a short deadline so I need someone who can work quickly and focus attention on this project over the next month.

Hello! I am working on a startup company that will consist of online multi-media courses and lessons. I have been working on the curriculum for months now, but I am too close to it and I am unable to see where it gets repetitive or where things need more explaining, examples, or more of an intro. Right now it is 4 courses, each broken down into subjects and lessons. Each lesson has text/ content, but the content needs to flow better with introductions and more examples etc. We can discuss this more. I need someone to read it and edit the existing copy and add more where necessary. It is currently about 57 pages in Microsoft word. The content is confidential and we will need the writer to sign a NDNC. The subject is related to dating advice, evolutionary psychology, pickup artists, understanding men/ women, psychology, etc. A background and/or interest in these subjects is ideal. Each lesson will need to be in a format that will best convey that information, whether it be...

I am working on a project story of my life. I will write and require someone to rewrite it as they see fit. I am after a true long term collaborator and willing to meet to discuss. Chapter one is complete of about 25,000 words. The aim of my book is for self therapy, reaching out to others, to show abusers that they have not won, to demonstrate not to be scared, how to live, cope and control the daemons within by means of self preservation mechanisms and strategies. This is also to be an ongoing project to incorporate into my personal website. I need to build a rapport and understanding with one writer only who will stick with me over the years to come. I am happy to hand over or sign over any potential royalties or earnings from this project. My interest is purely to get me story out there and help other. I am a graphic designer and web designer so I have knowledge and expertise in social media and marketing.

I have about a 30-40 page document that has a lot of content but is not "pretty" I would like to have the content "spiced up" with pictures and edited for grammar and clarity. Create an overall formatting and branding for the booklet that complements my current business. The name of my business is The Vitality Center and the website is opsmovement.com. You can get an idea of what we do on the website as well as an overall feel. I have attached a copy of our logo so you can see the direction we are going with colors, feel, etc. This particular booklet addresses the Systemic component of our Trilogy of Health.
