We are currently searching for one or more writer/researcher(s) whom can write with an educating voice and intriguing style. We maintain an online database, much like a wiki or encyclopedia, that is quickly becoming the defacto reference for Sushi knowledge. This is a living, breathing database full of very accurate data on the topic of Sushi and Sushi Culture - and it has been broken down on a fish by fish basis.
As customary, we are requesting writing/researching samples - However, with the spin that we would like you to choose from the following list of Sushi specimens and submit a sample entry of 300-500 words in length that you have researched on the topic. You may choose from: Aji, Engawa, Hirame, Ikura or Mebachi. The assignment: Present the facts... English Name of Fish, Physical Characteristics, Nutritional Data, Tasting Notes, Seasonal Availability, Preparation Info, Sustainability, Other interesting Facts.
Finally... You MUST MUST cite your sources of research attained. Please be advised this is not the easiest task at hand. Sushi is frequently surrounded by incorrect information and it may take a little digging to get it all correct.
Two of our mediocre samples have been attached to this project posting for review of what we are trying to attain. Your submissions, should you choose to accept our challenge, will be graded by our team based upon thoroughness behind the effort, individuality (absolutely no plagiarism),
Generally speaking every entry will be approximately 300-500 words in length. Due to the technical nature and precision of detail that we are looking for - An almost relentless pursuit towards perfection - We are prepared to pay on the order of $30-$40 for the more difficult entries, while many of the easier (common) selections will be $10-$20 on average.
Additionally, we have tons of existing content that has been amassed and assembled, here again we will call upon you, the writing/researching expert, to clean, rewrite, edit, check for accuracy, etc. Our guess is that existing entries can be "edited" in the $10-$20 range.
Our goal is to find 1-2 people that can begin knocking these out immediately, as we have well over 200 entries - and we are excited over the prospect of a continuing relationship! Do not rush to respond, do not send examples of unrelated writings, please take the time and make your bid count. We are only interested in quality.
I have read the terms associated with the project and I am very interested. Per you request I have submitted a writing sample for your review (PM). Thank you for your consideration.
