Hello fellow writers!
Some of you may have seen this project before here at GAF. If you made a bid at that time, it is most likely that you weren't chosen and that I really do regret: the writer team of my choice didn't manage to complete the whole job for reasons beyond my or their control. So here we go again:
In order to obtain the initial batch of information for a travel magazine / guide, we are looking for a small team of writers who could produce short pieces on a little less than 1000 towns, cities, beaches and natural parks.
No research is required: we will send you scans of the text already available in existing publications as a reference. Each destination corresponds to a scanned page which will be put online.
You will get a list, in Excel, of all places, mentioning the number of words we need for each place. You will find each place in the scans we deliver: each entry will have slightly more text than what we need you to produce. The capacity to make a good summary is key.
It is, of course, strictly forbidden to copy text from the reference texts. All entries will be checked.
The total word count for the first batch is approximately 200,000 words. There is no need to quote the whole job, since this is impossible with the budget range I have selected, but I will need a price per word mentioned in your proposal. We need this because the quantity will surely change over the next 2 weeks.
This job is an initial batch. This means there is a lot more to come. There are many more countries in the world. If the quality of your work and your price are good, we will surely count on you for the rest.
The entries need to be written in English, of course.
We are looking for a team since we need this job completed within 1 month from the date of acceptance. Please calculate well the number of people you need for this and mention it in your proposal.
Thank you for participating.
