The title says it all. We need someone who we can rely on for our writing projects. Especially, the availability and following the deadline strictly is a must. We had to fire some writers due to these 2 reasons. So, if you can't meet these conditions, then don't bother applying this job. Start your application saying "Article Writer" so we know you have read the application completely.
The rate is not negotiable, but you will get a bonus on bulk work very frequently depending on your performance. At this level you should know the real meaning of performance so don't expect a bonus without first doing a great job.
Per 100 words $0.40/0.60 for writing (Depending on your writing quality)
Per 100 words $0.30/0.40 for rewriting (Depending on your rewriting quality)
If you are not happy with these rates, then don't apply. And, yes, the contract will be for 1 year. If you are not planning for long term work then look somewhere else instead of here.
Now, you must be able to talk...
