Fly Free Academy is looking to hire one or two ongoing writers for our newsletter. The audience for this newsletter is people who want to travel and see the world. Our website primarily focuses on teaching people to use the frequent flyer system to get free or discounted international flights.
About half of the content will be creative writing and half will be how to.
Half the emails will be written to "paint the dream". For example:
** Topic: What travel does for your soul. (Builds confidence, expands your world view, etc.)
** Topic: Don't let your dream die. (Most people want to travel, but a lot of people don't - then they have kids and end up letting their dreams die.)
In other words, half the topics will be motivational, catered towards getting the reader excited about traveling and seeing the world.
The other half of the content will be how tos. For example:
** Topic: What's the best frequent flyer program for domestic US travel?
** Topic: What's the best credit card for a first time travel hacker?
** Topic: How to fly to Europe for free in 90 days
** Topic: How to get free priority boarding on United Airlines
Please apply with:
- Your writing background
- Writing samples
- Your travel experience - have you traveled the world? If so, where to?
- Your experience with travel hacking and/or frequent flyer miles. Have you taken award flights? Have you earned CC signup bonuses? If so, please include details.
We will *STRONGLY FAVOR* writers who have personally traveled and writers who have personally earned frequent flyer miles and flown award travel. If this is you, please provide details - even including exact frequent flyer programs you've used, where you've traveled, number of miles redeemed, etc. Even better if this is currently something you're doing. If you have experience with these topics, make sure to mention it in your cover letter.
This is an ongoing gig. There will be ongoing work.
