Lasher Media is seeking three ghostwriters that can write articles and listicles for a long-term work relationship. Please only apply if you are a native-English speaker who wants regular, weekly work for the foreseeable future. Our business is taking off and showing no signs of slowing down. This is a remote/telecommuting position.
Work from anywhere as long as you are US-based. A signed W-9 will be required.
We need content created on a variety of topics that include: Pregnancy Childbirth Child-rearing (pieces on infancy through teens. We don't discriminate and will want to know what ages you are comfortable writing on, because we know written content comes across best when it's natural).
Deadlines are important. Content is published frequently and there needs to be time allotted for editing to occur after you complete a submission. Typically, when we assign a topic, we'd like to see that content delivered within 24 to 36 hours. The good news is, the more good and timely work you submit to us, the more we will send you. All we ask for is a minimum of four pieces each week. Scheduling and days of availability are flexible, but candidates who can commit to the same schedule (of their choice) each week are preferred. Writers who only have weekend availability are still encouraged to apply if they can commit to the 4+/week minimum.
This position is for ghostwriting only. You will be compensated for your work and with that, we will retain the rights to that work.
You will be paid at $0.005/word. Most pieces are expected to be roughly 2,500 words, give or take. We tip out extra for those that our clients give great feedback on. The majority of the content requested will need to be in listicle format. For example, a headline might be: "20 Ways Millennials Are Killing It As Parents" or "20 Things Veteran Moms Wish They Knew Before They Had Their First Child" or "25 Baby Girl Names Fit For A Southern Belle" or "10 Reasons Moms Are Choosing Home Birth--And 10 Reasons Some Still Prefer The Hospital"
We LOVE pitches, too. If you've got a great idea to write about, we want to hear it.
Our writing style is casual and blog-like. Still, credible sources are important. We will want to see links directing us to where you found any facts or quotes that you cite in the content, but there are no requirements for how many there must be. You may find some pieces have several while others only have two or three. You will be given a title and be expected to deliver content based on such.
We are here to help if you struggle sometimes with outlining what subheadings to use, etc, but for the most part, we are looking for self-driven writers who can handle this type of task on their own.
Good grammar and punctuation skills are necessary. We are looking for writers with a mixture of talent and experience (even if you haven't been published).
We will work with you to hone the correct style and tone that we are looking for. In return, we expect work that is turned in on time.
Let us know if you'd like to complete a brief (400-word) test article and move forward. Thanks!
