Hi, my name is Chris Nelson, I am the Business Features Editor here at The National newspaper in Abu Dhabi (www.thenational.ae). I am on the hunt for a business-orientated Philippine-based contributor for the section, specifically business features. Usually the articles are 1,000 to 1,200 words main with a side article of 500 to 700 words the number of articles required varies but usually at least once a month. Our rate of pay is about 54 US cents per word, so a 1,200 main piece and a 7-word side works out at a little over $1,000.
The Philippines is high on our agenda here as, of course, we have a large number of Filipinos living here. Plus, the strength of the Philippine economy is proving to be a real world leader and I'd like to cover more business stories from the country.
If you, or anyone you know, is able and interested, please contact me and we can take it from there
