How it works to be a writer for Age of Miniatures
You are given a headline and a topic for the article. Sometimes there will be a framework of similar articles you have to draw upon. You are given the freedom to research and write the article.
Each article will have a rough number of words it should end on being. When you have finished writing the article, I look it over and edit it. After that, I will publish it on the website (with your name or credit on it if you want).
The payment will start out at $20 per 1000 words (or 2 cents per word). Tasks that does not involve writing new content, we pay an hourly rate for.
As you gain experience writing articles you will get more flexibility in choosing your own topics and outlining and writing articles as you like. Ideally, you can write 4 articles at about 2000-2500 words a month. If you can write more there is definitely room for that.
What I am looking for in writers
- We are not looking to hire full-time employees. You are paid for the articles you write as a freelancer.
- You do not have to be a professional writer, but if you have a firm grasp of correct English spelling, grammar, and punctuation that is a big plus.
- The most important thing is that you should know a lot about your hobby and that you have the urge to write about it. We want passion in our writers!
- Preferably we want people who can commit to writing 2-4 2,500-word articles per month and do the research that goes into that.
- If you have experience in writing content for the web, that is a big plus.
