Independent Writer - ongoing projects
I am looking to add ten new additions to my writing team.
A bit about me & my team:
I am an established writer who has written articles in magazines, blogs, and various newsletters. I am also an established editor working primarily with business texts. However, I also use my writing & editing business (ChevreWords - website coming soon) as an article writing content machine. I have a variety of contacts with businesses, companies, organizations, and individuals who use my services. They trust me to deliver exceptional work and I do so with the help of my writing team. Unlike other teams, I pay my writers fairly. You won't see rates of $5 for a 700 word article.
I'm looking for someone who can be a positive team member and write articles as assigned each week. Most likely looking for 10-80 articles written per week. The position will be discussed in greater detail with the writers chosen. This job opportunity is perfect for freelance writers looking for stable income or young college students/college graduates looking for experience. The pay rate is $12 per article for 500/600 words for the current project. Other projects range from $10 - $20 per article depending on length and content. Most talented writers can write 1-3 articles per hour.
*You get to choose how many articles you would like to write. As few as 5 or as many as 80.
*Constructive criticism given to work to help educate new writers.
*Current project is contracted through July/August however, I'm always contracting new projects and this could very well be a long-term writing gig. (at least guaranteed until July/August).
Thank you for your consideration. Looking forward to adding new teammates!
