01 | Able to work as part of a team and on their own effectively (we're a friendly bunch that will need to collaborate but writing is a solo gig)
02 | Able to work from their own space (as a freelance member of the team you'll work remotely)
03 | Tech Savvy (you'll be working with us via video conference, calls, email and project management software so a good grasp on tech is a must)
04 | Able to Meet Deadlines (this goes without saying, late projects are bad for everyone)
05 | Possess a good grasp of the written word, and understand how to craft an article that people want to read (engaging content is the best!)
05 | Kind of awesome (no one wants to work with a jerk)
What Does the Job Entail?
You'll write by the piece as needed. Some gigs will be monthly or weekly pieces while others will be one-offs. The range of topics and types of clients varies greatly, so versatility is a must. You'll write everything from taglines to press releases, blogs or advertising copy (we're happy to show you form and help with technical skills if there’s a format you're unfamiliar with.)
What Experience Should You Have?
You don’t need to have previous experience as a professional writer (although it's an asset) but you must be willing to learn and hone your craft.
How Much Will You Earn?
The rate is $25/hour (but sometimes a flat rate, depending on the piece)
How to Apply?
Send us some pieces of work. You’ll find the requirements below. You can send them in word documents, Google docs, or by carrier pigeon.
PIECE 01 | A press release
Have fun with this piece, it’s open for you to make up some fun facts (which we’d prefer you don’t do in real PR’s)
Write a press release, for immediate release about a coffee shop in New York City. Its specialty is bacon flavored coffee, which has been featured on a handful of morning shows in the area with positive reviews. About the shop: There’s a moose head on the wall that changes its wardrobe, based on the season. In the summer it can be found draped in a Hawaiian shirt and in the winter, it sports a lumberjack collar and a hat with ear flaps. The space is small and hip with a hidden patio in the back and a ton of different clocks strewn around the space. About the Shop: The owner is named Ron Wilson III. He's a monocle-wearing fellow with a love of sweater vests and blue socks; he started the coffee shop to showcase his love of quirky antiques and bacon in 2015.
PIECE 02 | Write a blog article (around 350 words) about how to dress like you're still living in the 80s.
PIECE 03 | A group of fun and engaging taglines for the coffee shop listed above in Piece 01. Please provide a minimum of 5 tagline ideas.
