    I hate writing , it is not just in me. I don't mind sitting and editing and finalizing everything, what I want to know is where can I find decent writers at decent price so I can edit it and form it?

    I would recommend either checking the marketplace section, or looking for some decent writers over at Text Broker; hiring 4-star authors is generally considered the best route to take.

    I actually signed-up to the UK site around 3 weeks ago as an author. Currently I'm a 4-star author, just waiting for more of my work to be reviewed by the staff to make it to 5-stars.

    I can only talk from the author side, as I've never been a client on there, but so far I've found the staff to be extremely helpful. I've read that if a client wants to reject an article, it must first be reviewed by Text Broker to make sure that the author is actually the one at fault.

    Good work gets picked-up very quickly, but do be cautious of authors accepting the work and then cancelling the order or going past the deadline--there are no penalties for this so I assume it goes on quite a bit. Authors have the ability to blacklist clients, I'm assuming clients have a similar ability, so I'd suggest using it if you run into any bad authors :)

    Hope that helped, if you have any more questions just let me know.


    EDIT: I'm curious to know, have you heard bad reviews from the author-side, or client-side?

    Oh, also, I picked-up a piece of work on the platform a few days ago and was contacted by the Text Broker staff about 5 minutes after; they wanted to know when I'd be able to deliver the work because the client had a few authors before me cancel and/or miss the deadline. So I'm assuming that clients have something along the lines of a "personal account manager" or something, I'm not sure.

    As said before, you can check market place here on BHW but be very careful as some claim to be native English speakers but they are NOT so you have to be selective but I guess it's the same in every market place.

    I've found that it's often possible to get information from the sales letter or service description about the writers english and grammar. If there are several grammatical mistakes in the description, I fear that this will reflect in the articles, and shy away from that provider. I'm not a native english speaker myself though, so I might not notice every error. Not saying this is always the case either, just how I view it.
