Hey folks. Thanks for taking the time to view this job opportunity. I have a 10,100 word short romance story that is hot off the press and needs to be thoroughly proofread and edited. I would prefer someone who has previous experience with Romance stories. I need someone to go in and proofread each sentence line by line and then make comments in Microsoft Word. Then you will submit it back to me so that I can give it back to the writer to fix all of the things that you noted in your comments. You will have to do very minimal actual editing. I expect you to fix the simple and quick things, but anything that needs to be majorly overhauled will only require you to leave comments. Thanks for applying and I look forward to working with you!

There is not a huge amount of creativity for this job, just simple typesetting. However, if this job goes well, there could be scope for doing future projects with our company.
