I need one or two writers for ongoing work.
The research is more important than the actual writing, but incomprehensible gibberish will be rejected, unpaid.
Word Count will vary by article, but will never be more than 800 words.
Articles will be divided into sections, each with its own heading and word count.
Each article will have its own standards that will be relayed when the work is assigned (some will be "how to" articles and some will simply be facts about a subject.)
THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT
Each article written shall have at least FOUR links to sources you used for your research, and these sites must be LEGITIMATE sites BASED IN THE US. .org and .edu sites are good, but .com sites with original material are acceptable. Wikipedia and ANY content sites (ehow, [url removed, login to view], ezine, etc) are unacceptable and will result in REJECTED work. If you are unsure if a site is acceptable, contact me and ask. Work will usually have a 24 hour deadline.
There may be some work available with less stringent research requirements, which will have a lower rate of pay.
Pay will be 50 cents/100 words for the research-intensive work, and 25 cents/100 words for less intensive work.
Writers must be native English speakers. Prove to me that you are by providing detail in your bid. I would like a PM of at least a paragraph so I can assess your skills, and samples of YOUR work (not someone else's)
NO FARMING THIS OUT TO OTHER WRITERS. IF I SUSPECT THAT YOU ARE, ANY UNPAID WORK WILL NOT BE PAID.
Assignments will usually be on a daily basis, 2-3 articles per day. Once an assignment is confirmed by you, it is considered ASSIGNED and failure to provide by the due date will result in a termination of our working relationship. Payments will be once per week, through paypal.
Bid $30 and start your PM with a verb to prove that you have read all instructions.
Since I am having difficulty finding work of the quality I'm looking for, I will open this up a bit. Place a bid of $30 if you are interested in being assigned a topic and returning to me four links to quality, professional sites that provide information on the topic I gave you. Each link should come with it a summary of the information found as it relates to the topic. The summary will be for me only, not publication, so it does not need to be polished, just factual. No wiki or content sites are allowed. The focus is on professional sites directed to U.S. readers like .org and .edu sites. I will pay 25 cents per quality link and summary of pertinent information.
