I'm looking for someone who has both the gift of writing and curiosity about all the things in the universe that life has to offer; the type of person who loves to learn new things, figure out how stuff works, and has varied interests.
If you can write and also enjoy psychology, science, history, consciousness, physics, biology, space...you name it, this could be an amazing opportunity! If you listen to the How Stuff Works podcast, follow Curiosity dot com, or watch Cosmos, then you'll be a perfect fit.
You don't have to be a brainiac or have all the knowledge in your head, you just need to be able to find awesome facts, and enough information about them to write an article. No professional or scholastic training needed.
I'm creating a business that will need to create a short article of about one-thousand words EVERY SINGLE DAY. To help me, I'm looking for either one person, or a small team, to assist me with the task. None of the articles will have a specific topic, they just have to be interesting!
The format: Start with one or two sentences that will capture the readers' attention, then follow with an explanation or break-down of the subject matter. The topic can be ANYTHING! It can be obscure and unheard of, or just a new view or new facts of something already known.
I will be happy to start by paying a per-article fee. Or, if you have the right personality and find that my project sounds like something you really want to be a part of for the long run, we can work something else out.
I don't care how old you are, whether you're a male or female, or what kind of formal training you have. All you need to do to apply is: pick something that fascinates you (and you think might fascinate others as well), write a one-thousand word article (doesn't need to be exact), and email it to me. Feel free to get as weird or as far out as you want.
ATTENTION: I need a submission article in order to consider you for this work. I cannot go off of references or your interests alone. If you send me an email, please attach an article you've written in response to this ad. I'm not looking for perfect grammar or erudite literature, I want to read your short article simply because the subject you choose and the enthusiasm I read in your words will tell me more about how perfect you will be for this position than would a long standing career or a list of published works.
If you want to also include a few sentences about yourself, it may help but is not necessary. Also, if you would include how much you'd like to get paid per article, that will also help, but again, not necessary (we can negotiate later).
This could be a great part time gig that may grow into something very big, I hope. You'll be getting paid to learn - what's better than that?! It could be a fantastic project to join from its inception!
