Project details

What we need
  • Review of up to 20 pages of copy for grammar, style, tone, and consistency
  • Advice on how to write effective copy going forward
Additional details

We're remodeling and rebuilding our website from scratch! The only copy we're keeping are the 66 personal narratives we've published. The personal narratives are 500 to 1,500 words each. We're looking for somebody or a few people to copy-edit the 66 stories. https://betterbecausecollective.org/stories/

What we have in place
  • Our organization thrives due to a dedicated team, including our founder/executive director/volunteer manager, all deeply committed to our cause. Additionally, we benefit from talented volunteers skilled in editing, copywriting, UI/UX design, SEO, and web development. To support our operations, we use advanced tools such as Slack, Trello, Google Drive (Google Docs), WordPress, and other essential business applications, ensuring our continued success and effectiveness.
How this will help
This project will save us $1,792 , allowing us to continue operating on a shoestring budget.

We're reopening operations, starting with a brand new website to attract more readers and contributors. Having personal narratives without any errors will help us make the best impression with the new website and our grand reopening marketing initiative. We want to spread hope, which is something we all need.
