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

I have written two stories (more to come) that need creative writing about individuals in our organization. I also need to make sure they make sense :)

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have 2 stories, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have time, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

We need to have stories so our donors know how their dollars effect our organization.
