Editor with experience in blogs and presentations
Closed - This job posting has been filled and work has been completed.
I'm looking for an editor with an excellent command of English, a familiarity with blogging style (short, conversational, personal), a knack for presentation flow, and the ruthlessness to cut and rearrange words until a piece flows well and is no longer than it needs to be. I want someone to help me trim the occasional blog article and presentation until it's clear.
You will not need to write content (or fake reviews, or astroturf comments, or do other icky things). Just edit to make sure that every word counts.
Turnaround doesn't need to be immediate - you can fit this work around your other work.
When applying for this job, please submit before and after samples of your editing. The best applicants will have examples of both edited blog posts and edited presentations, and an innate hatred of business jargon such as "utilize", "incentivize," and "leverage" (when used as a verb).
If you would like to see my writing style to see if we're compatible, check out http://sachachua.com for my blog posts and http://slideshare.net/sachac for my presentations. I write a lot of raw material which I occasionally refine into more useful articles, and I would like to take that writing to the next level. I also tend to obsess a bit about the logical flow and organization of presentations, and I would love to be able to bounce ideas off an editor who knows his or her work and who can provide fresh perspectives.
