We are a startup company based in Philadelphia PA doing ebook publishing in multiple languages.
We are looking for English writers for our self-publishing and translation efforts. Each writer will be responsible for developing brief, original (not copied) non-fiction stories of between 200 and 400 words each. These will be based upon content and topics assigned by the company.
Our "high-interest, simple-text" stories will cover biography, geography, history, culture and language, etc. The narratives should be factual but easy to read - encyclopedia content with a soft, readable tone.
You must have excellent English writing skills and a familiarity with a wide range of topics. Also, you should be able to write in a creative and engaging style that will appeal to broad groups of people.
Along with your cover letter, please submit writing samples that highlight your writing style. Also, please also rate your availability over the next several weeks.
