    I'm looking to hire some people to help me with my long term writing contracts. If you're a skilled writer with a good vocabulary and a flexible writing style, then chances are I've got quite a bit of work for you.

    Tasks will vary but generally they will consist of following my guidelines and handing in work on time. Your work will be checked and edited by me, and if it's not up to standards, I will send it back to be revised at YOUR expense.

    If you can write a 500 word article within 24 hours, then let's see what you're capable of:-

    Payment starts $5 per article and $3.5 for blog post. It's a little bit more complicated because there is a fine / bonus system in place.
    +10% = handed in early
    +10% = high quality work
    -10% = Revisions required (grammatical errors, spelling mistakes)
    -10% = For every day work is delayed. If you're late more than 3 days with a project, you're fired.

    If a client wants some minor changes, then I'd expect you to make revisions for free. Obviously there would be no fine!

    The work will be on spec, that is if you take it, you complete it. While this may evolve into a full-time position, you have to understand that ultimately it will always be a freelance relationship.

    If you're interested, then send me a PM with your samples and favored writing areas. If I think you have what it takes, then I will pay you for one 300 word sample.

    This may very well turn into a full-time position demanding around 2000 words a day. Think you can deliver?

    Names, nationality and contact info in the PM as well please. This is more to help me manage time zones than anything else.

    And no, you're not called Bob.
