Regular work for quality writers

Filed under: Earn Money — January 22, 2010

All sorts of people are looking for writing work as a way of earning extra money working from home at times to suit themselves.

We have all sorts of people writing for us from housewives (or husbands), full time workers who can write about their profession or hobbies, university students and even lecturers to professional writers who can write about anything.

Naturally most of our work is writing required to publish on the Internet so does not pay as much as a professional writer might earn from writing for print publications, so why would a professional writer choose to work for us?

The professional freelance writers who do work for us tell us it’s for a couple of reasons:

  • We offer regular work that can help them stave off the ebbs and flows that come from being a freelance writer
  • Our work is generally short articles of 250 to 500 words that they can churn out quite easily
  • Our work does not usually require much research and for that which does, the writer can keep the same work on an on-going basis so the same research will stand them in good stead for months

Most professional freelance writers that work for us take a fixed volume of work each month – a volume that suits them and us – and if they have a quiet month, they can volunteer for extra work if we have it.

We always welcome applications from good writers.  If you want to apply for writing work, please give us a detailed application on the Apply To Be A Writer page.

  1. Articles are a great way to earn extra income. Even if you don’t write your own material , hiring a writer can prove to be very profitable. At the moment the US are leaders in the make income with with articles industry – but the UK are closely following. Ehow was just USbased, now there are plans for an Ehow UK. Hubpages and Associated Content are also great side earners, not to forget helium.

  2. I quite fancy the idea of writing part-time, off the cuff, or a researched piece of culture. commerce, culinary challenge or pure opinion, if a cat is required amongst the pigeons. Don’t get me started on pigeons.

  4. I cant find any reference to how much money I would be paid for my writing on your website. The FAQ’s refer you to the T&C’s however there is no current rates shown.

    can you please advise?

    thanks

  5. Hi Pam,

    Thanks for your comment. We recently updated our T&Cs and that part must have been left out. It’s now been updated, but effectively the rate of payment depends on a couple of factors – the primary factor being the length of the piece.

    We note you’ve made an application and assuming you make it onto our team of writers, full details of payment are given with any new assignment before you accept it.

    Thanks

  6. I received notification that I was going onto the waiting list on 28/06/10. What is the approximate wait for a contract to be offered? could not see any timescales following acceptance on the website.

  7. Typically how long after submitting your writing sample can you expect to hear if you have been accepted or not? I assume we would be notified either way.

    I submitted my sample on August 28th in accordance with your e-mail’s guidelines and am curious when I can expect to hear back from you.

    Thanks,
    D,

  12. Hi

    I have a full-time job and, although not yet published, enjoy writing in my spare time. I am extremely interested in joining your team. However I am unsure how much of my time will be required and whether there is flexibility in this – the amount of time I can spend writing may vary signficantly from one month to the next.

    many thanks
    Andy

  13. Hi,

    I apologise if this is the wrong place to ask, but I can’t find a more appropriate place. I have sent off my application and completed the writing sample but I don’t believe I have sent it to the correct email address. All I get in reply is another automated response identical to the first I received. Is this to be expected?

    Thank you,
    Sarah Orsborne

  14. Hi Sarah, sorry for the delay in replying but we did have some trouble with that email. If you haven’t managed to apply OK, our email address to do so is writerapplications@hotmail.co.uk – you can send your sample article there.

    Regards
