I'm seeking a long-term relationship with considerable potential work for a competent writer. First task, a 1600 -2000-word portion of an ebook re: a fun activity for families. I'll supply topic, some content, suggested ideas, and potential resources. From this, your knowledge, and research, you create original/compelling content. A major purpose of this first assignment: evaluate your skills, resourcefulness, creativity--and ambition!
Copying work of others is unacceptable. This is "work made for hire" under U.S. Copyright law. Your participation will not be acknowledged in this initial work.
Style is to be warm and personal: no sterile, dry, college-dissertation-type writing. Unacceptable: "The reader, upon application of this procedure, will ascertain that..." Write: "When you try this, you'll find..." or something similar. Contractions should be used.
Please provide samples or links to your published work. Without samples, the bid will not be considered.
Re-writes may be required until you get a feel for my style and expectations. I'll provide sites where you can examine some of my writing. Include the following in your bid, "Codeword is Dulcie." This assures me that you've read my copy and aren't bidding without thoughtful evaluation of the project.
I'm an under-the-gun and overwhelmed award-winning novelist and non-fiction writer.
For a skilled writer this assignment should be easy and fun. But you must be able to work within deadlines.
I'm eager to meet that writer who can help me produce content-rich material for my customers, clients, and subscribers. I'm excited about the writing possibilities that lie ahead for both of us.
