The core function of this position is to produce objective written content for our audience of independent and conservative readers. We are looking for someone able to isolate an intriguing aspect of a news story and communicate it in a clear, concise manner. He or she should bring a sense of integrity and strong value system to the position. Our ideal candidate for this position will have a thorough understanding of current events and the media’s role in informing the public.
How it works:
Here are the details for our writers:
We pay a starting price of $15 per article. Articles take our current writers between 30 minutes to an hour to do — the longer they spend writing for us daily, the faster and easier each article becomes. Some of our writers can pump out an article in less than 15 minutes, assuming it’s a simple story or update.
Note that this is the starting rate.
After three months, we’ll renegotiate the price.
