If you have great writing skills and would love to get paid for your writing while working from home, then this might be the job for you. This can easily turn into a long-term position.

We are looking for part-time, freelance writers who can:
1. Follow instructions
2. Meet deadlines
3. Write with excellent grammar and an engaging voice
4. Perform first-rate research
5. Complete between 10 and 60 articles per week
6. Freelancers who are NATIVE English speakers

Our rates vary depending on the client. Most of our writers make about $5 - $10 per 500-word article and can write up to 2-4 articles an hour in the beginning and go up from there. That means, you could make about $10 an hour or better if you are an efficient researcher and writer. Excellent writing can result in rate increases and better assignments. Our more experienced and skilled writers average about $30 an hour. You also enjoy freedom from searching for work on your own.

Our clients order writing that includes news articles, blogs, product descriptions, website content, magazine articles, and SEO work. We are looking for writers who can write in all these formats or who can learn the formats they don't know quickly. The most important part of this job is having an interesting voice in your writing that flows, and that is well-researched while meeting client instructions to the letter.

Hired writers will need to fill out a W-9 to keep track of income for tax records and will be required to communicate regularly through email and/or Skype. Payments occur via PayPal. Contractors are expected to submit an invoice which we pay within 15 business days.

If you wish to apply for this job, please email us regarding your experience, education, days and hours you want to work, and how many 500 word articles you can complete each day/week. Also, please be prepared to follow the instructions of a sample article if your proposal is accepted so that we can judge your ability to follow instructions, self-edit, write, and to get a feel for your voice. This will be a paid sample article. Please attach work you have completed in the past so that we may use that as a basis for selecting your proposal.

To make communication faster, please include your email address in your response. We will then contact you to do a paid sample.
