Opis Konkursu

* To choose a person was hard, I will not deny. Amongst the 29 received entries, I really liked 5 of them (the entries that received 4 stars). I choose a person based on the choice words used in this text, which made the text easy to read. It was important that important parts did not lose their meanings - this was an issue with some of the entries. Please accept my apologies if the sample text gave you a bit of headache.



Please only consider submitting an entry if you love writing and can put your heart on this piece. This is the result of years of work, which included me spending all my savings and months living in a landless camp. I will literally be on call 24/7 to help you to revise my work. Imagine you are the editor of a company and you are trying to 'brush up' someone's work. Although I insist in using the words revise and edit, I just expect you to make it a pleasant error free piece of work.

Bear in mind that I need it to be done in the coming days, the soonest the best though. I plan to award this contest to the winner by 21st of March, and I will immediately send you a part of it (if not all), I definitely need all (at least most of) it back in my hands by: 31st of March 2017

I am looking for a native English speaking person to do a substantial revision/editing of a 60k words text in the coming days, WITHOUT CHANGING THE MEANING of what I am saying - I will be happy to help you to help me, no need to be afraid or shy to ask me a question. The text needs to be checked for spelling errors / grammar / clarity via "Track Changes" (I will send it to you in a MS word document). I need someone to revise my work making it more readable by correcting mistakes, typos, changing the order of sentences and/or anything else you think is appropriate to do. The objective is to make my work a clever piece of work that is easy to read, it is still an academic piece of work though. I hate scholars writing in a complicated way, I do not want mine to be like theirs. Later, I may plan to publish it as a book (next year?).

I use a grammar check software to check my work, but, as we know, humans [can if they want] do better than a software. Most of the 60 words were already read by my peers and/or my supervisors. In fact, about 20k words are in articles that I published in the past. Now, I need someone with:

Excellent spelling and grammar
Ability to reword and rewrite when necessary

I DO NOT NEED
No need to worry about layout and formatting (I will be working on it while you revise the text)
Plagiarism, I do not need or want! (Besides being an unethical issue, it is a legal offence)
You doing research on my behalf (I have already done it, I just need someone to make it ‘shine’)
Formatting my text (I will deal with this annoying, time consuming part)

By the way, I plan to write 3 short pieces of 10k focusing on different topics that I have not approach in this long piece. So, I may need revision again. As you will be very familiar with my work, if I go ahead with this idea, I will definitely prefer the same person revising the short pieces.

Opinie o Pracodawcy

“I had a long piece of work to be revised withing a short period of time, and Ddrewnjus did a great job!!! It took a bit longer than expected (it was partially because of my long piece of work, but it was worth the few extra days). I will definitely consider hire her again, if I need more help to work on my texts in English. ”

      Yes, the project is already written. It is actually in a good shape. So, it should NOT take anyone a long time to revise it.

    Hi Student of world. I looked at the excerpt you attached and it is really difficult to figure it out. You say in your contest brief that your manuscript is actually in much better shape. Could you rather post an actual and typical piece? That would give me a better idea of how much work it actually needs and how long it would take. Thanks/

      Hi Liesa, I am sorry for taking a while to get back to you. I listened to you, and I made changes in the description and added an excerpt of the an actual and typical piece. so you can have a better idea of how much work it actually needs and how long it would take. If you have any question, please let me know.

    Is this test about Para-phrasing the 400 words only ?

      This it not a test, but a contest. I added this 397 fragment of the text, so Freelancers willing to do this work will have the opportunity to edit it and submit as entry.
