Print-to-text transcriber needed

220 SW 200th St near 1st Ave S

(google map)

compensation: $2.00 per page


I am in the process of editing a music-related literary anthology. I am still researching and collecting source material but would like to engage one or more people to transcribe the selections I am considering for inclusion.

I will provide:

1. The books and other source material (magazines, printouts, etc) with markers as to where to begin and end;
2. A Google Docs template in a shared Google folder for you to follow.

I am offering $2.00 per finished page. I expect there to be somewhere between 750 - 1,000 pages over the next 6-12 months, in batches. I will pay as we go (not expecting you to wait until the end to get paid!) via cash, check, Paypal or Venmo.

There may be other tasks that come up as the project takes shape, like proofreading the book proposal, copy-editing, etc. If you are qualified and interested in that work I would be happy to have you handle it when the time comes.

I live in Normandy Park and spend my time between there and at my significant other’s in the South End of Seattle. My strong preference is someone no further North than Mt Baker in Seattle or further South than Des Moines.

You would be welcome to work with me (I’m fully-vax’ed!) or to take the material to work at your own location. I would ask that if you are going to take the material that you commit to a fast turnaround.

Accuracy and timeliness are most important to me. If you are interested please reach out with any questions.
