I am looking for several copy editors who have proven experience in books.
Spelling, punctuation and grammatical errors need to be fixed for each book in a timely and accurate manner.
You will be provided a Word document that you will work on and make changes. The original voice of the author needs to be retained. So all you have to do is make sure sentence structure and spelling is correct.
Please supply a list of books you have copy-edited in the past. People with no prior experience editing books will be automatically declined for this role.
This is an on-going assignment as we will have books coming in on a regular basis.
I'm willing to pay a pro-rata rate of $450 plus odesk fees for 100,000 words. This includes any revisions that may be required. Turnaround time we expect is 3 weeks.
All books will need to be edited in Australian/UK English and spelling.
You may be requested to do some sample editing work.
Jobs will come on a regular basis. We cannot guarantee number of jobs that will be available. But you will be notified as and when jobs come in.
Please only apply if you have experience in copy-editing books for at least 2 years.
