Hello, and thanks for your interest! We're looking for authors that are interested in an ongoing relationship, creating 100% original content for us in the form of hot and steamy romance short stories with the potential for longer works in the future. Ideally, you are a very open minded and creative individual, with an excellent grasp of the English language in its written form. You should be able to write a complete story of at least 5000-10000 words that is very interesting, entertaining, and above all, steamy. Ideally you are female, as the stories should be written from the female perspective for female readers. To start, we are offering $20 per 1000 words with a 5000 word minimum, but writers of quality and speed may be offered more to continue with us.

You will have complete freedom over the story line and characters. I want something short, sweet, and to the point. I'm looking for your typical survival story, but something that will stand out. With a dark and edgy tone. Preferably a native English writer, but all are welcomed to apply. Please attach a sample I can review, it can be any piece of fiction, but maybe something with a bit of a thrill to it, or scare. Thank you, and happy hunting! P.s. This is a ghost writing project and once payment is released, all rights and anything to do with the story will belong to me.

Hello creative writers! We are a small online retailer operating in Australia. We sell a new range products each day, up to 3 of those products are brand new per day and require new copy. The products come from a wide range of different categories but are usually in some way clever, unusual, interesting, or not widely available. Traditionally we have written the copy for the products in-house but are looking to outsource this job on a semi-permanent basis. So this job could have an indefinite end point, and may require copy for up to 3 products per day. Example copy for past products can be seen at http://zazz.com.au/daily/archive and we would like to continue with a similar playful tone. It is proposed that we will start slowly but eventually offload the full workload to a 3rd party. We will begin by asking applicants to write one or two examples of copy for upcoming products, and then the successful applicant will take over the role (up to 3 products per day) from that day...
