Check out this speechwriting-help-wanted Craigslist ad:
I need to give a speech and need someone to help me come up with an outline.
I am NOT looking for someone to write the entire speech, as much of the speech will be based on stories from my life. I just need someone that can help me brainstorm and come with an outline (i.e. overall point, subpoints, “this story here, that story there” kind of thing). The speech will be 40-45 minutes.
I do not envision this taking more than an hour or two.
* MUST HAVE AN EXAMPLES OF AT LEAST ONE SPEECH YOU HAVE WRITTEN (A 5-10 MINUTE SPEECH IS FINE).
* Emails that do not include a fee range will not be considered
* Must be local
Why do I feel like I’m in the doghouse already?
