I have the winning KAC youth entries in hand and I could use a little assistance in preparing the book. I need a few volunteers who are quick and precise with a keyboard.
All I need is for entries to be typed into a single document (preferably MS Word, but I can work with alternatives) and sent to me via an attachment in an email. I can divide the work into several packets to share the job.
Entries will arrive to you in a scanned document (and if anyone is wondering, I've tested OCR recognition software and it's workable, but will require a LOT of cleanup. I'd prefer humans typing who can quickly proof their own work.)
No formatting necessary. This is a straight typing job. Originals will be delivered to volunteers via PDF file.
If I could hear from volunteers by Friday, August 22, I'll divide the entries and try to get everything distributed this weekend. Would be lovely to have it all back within the week -- so due August 29? I need to have plenty of time to get this to Mennonite to print prior to the convention.
I likely have room for a proofreader or two, as well, when the book is formatted. Let me know if you would like to volunteer for that in early September.
Please pass this request on to any KAC members you think might be interested in helping.
