We are looking for several Romance writers to join our team. Ideally, we'll work together for the long-term if everything goes well. Each writer will be assigned a writing project (novella, or a group of novellas). We'll provide each of you with a broad plot on which you'll work and expand on, allowing lots of room to your own imagination. Each novella will contain at least 20k words, and for the first job, we'll pay you a fee of $0.01 per word. That's a total of $200 per 20k word novella. This fee will go up the more we work with you. Each novella turnaround time is 10/14 days. In order to apply, please: 1) Make sure you have excellent English written skills 2) Make sure you're passionate about Romance writing. You must be in tune with the feminine mind (most Romance readers are women), knowing which buttons to push, how, and when. It certainly helps if you have been writing related subjects in the past! It also helps if you're a frequent reader of those niches yourself as well 3)...
