Motivation and drive to work independently
Eagerness for constructive feedback
College degree, preferably in English, Creative Writing, or another writing-intensive field
To apply, please send a brief introductory email to email@example.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!
