You need a writer for sales or
marketing copy, an article for your magazine —
a technical overview or a procedural
guide describing your product so that a customer
can effectively use it.
Or you need an editor to collaborate with a writer
on a publications project, copyedit a book,
or do a developmental edit on technical content
that may be delivered in print or on the web.
