Special Projects Writer - wikiHow

wikiHow is seeking a talented, ambitious, college-educated writer to help us create engaging instructional content. As a remote, full-time writer for wikiHow, you will work with our teams to create immersive, impactful learning experiences on a wide range of topics. You’ll collaborate with subject matter experts, video producers, and our special projects team to develop new styles of educational content that go beyond traditional “How-to” guides. 

If you’re a passionate, skilled writer and a motivated self-starter, this might be the position for you! This remote position is for a full-time 40-hour work week during regular business hours. The position includes basic benefits, and though the work is remote, we will always support your writing with thoughtful review and individual help as needed.

What you’ll do:

What you’ll bring:

To apply, please send a brief introductory email to writing@wikihow.com with the subject line “Special Projects Writer” The email should include your resume and ONE writing sample that showcases work that you’re proud of, ideally a published piece intended for a broad audience. 

We will be reviewing and contacting applicants about next steps. You'll need to pass a brief paid writing test as part of our application process. If you pass our initial test, we will move you on to a 2-week trial contract that will allow us to get to know your work, and give you the opportunity to decide whether this role is right for you. 

Please note: We’re a small team processing a high volume of applications. While we do review every application, we unfortunately can’t guarantee a response to every applicant. We are very grateful for your time and interest in wikiHow!
