Hi! I'm looking for a fast, quality writer to create "romantic" stories for me. I'm looking for someone to enter a long-term contract to create content. If the first piece is satisfactory, I would love to continue with more! Rates I am looking for stories that are at least 5000 words, at a rate of $1.00 for every 200 words (So a 5,000 word story would be $25, and 10,000 would be $50). A tip of 20% of the payment will be added on as long the work is good quality and requires minimal editing on my part. What you'll be writing I'm flexible as to the exact content, but there will be some general guidelines and overarching themes that I will want. For more information, please contact me! If you're applying, please tell me a little about yourself and include a sample of your fiction writing! Thank you!

Hi there, This project is for me personally. I have written a series of short stories for my daughters, and they have taken to them ore than i thought, so i figured it would be fun to have them illustrated with a view of making them into actual books to give their friends etc. Therefore, i am seeking a talent to join me in bringing the stories to life. The main character is a dog, and whilst i do not want straight out cartoon, it does still need to appeal to a child - so CREATIVITY is a must please. You must be able to produce your work in a way that it can go straight to printers, without any extra work. Inspirations of work by Isabelle Arsenault....but not mandatory. Thank you and look forward to seeing your application!
