Birthday Giveaway: Paper Editing

Have you ever turned something in only to read it a day later to see a big, glaring mistake? You’ll probably want to read this.

I’ll edit one of your things, be it a resume, paper, cover letter, love letter, short story, or angry tumblr screed. You’ll get the most out of this if whatever I’m editing is pretty close to final. I am also setting a word limit of 10,000 words (that’s about 20 pages double-spaced).

Comment below and tell me what you’d like to have edited.

Obligatory fine print: Editing must be redeemed by March 15, 2014. Editing is limited to 5 billable hours. If you have a piece that will take more than 5 hours or is more than 10,000 words, you can negotiate with me to pay the balance at a Friends of P-Mag rate. 

To enter this giveaway, you can comment on this post, like this post on our Facebook page, share the post on Facebook, retweet on Twitter, and/or reblog on Tumblr. Winners will be chosen via random number generator after the giveaway closes at 12:01 a.m. EST, Monday October 14. You may enter once per entry type (so one like, one comment, one reblog, etc.). By entering, you agree to the full contest Terms & Conditions. Winners will be announced on Persephone Magazine on Friday, October 18 and contacted by the writer to arrange delivery.

This would come in so handy the legal brief I’m writing as a final exam type assignment for my advanced legal writing course! I think it’s awesome that all the editors are giving something personal and thoughtful away to celebrate the magazine’s birthday.
