Typing and correcting children's poetry

We run creative writing and poetry competitions in schools where children ages 4 - 18 send in handwritten poems and short stories.

For this particular project, we need poems written by 7-11-year-olds to be typed, basic grammar and spellings corrected and formatting changed where necessary so the work is laid out as a poem. Once typed our in house editorial team will read them all and do a final edit of the book.

We'll send you a special link where you can see the scan of the work and there is space to type. This is a book of 250 entries that need trying. We publish 1000's of books a year and this is a trial to see how it works.

I've attached some sample images of what you would be working with and also our house styles for typing.
