I am looking for a "romantic" short story writer, with spicy elements. The task will be to write a 4,000 to 5,000 word story. I will tell you what exactly I am looking for in terms of the genre, or you can work on your own plot if you'd like. I want you to be comfortable writing something that you enjoy, otherwise I have found that most writers do not give quality work otherwise. I am looking for 3 writers who are interested in longer term work. I am looking for 1 or 2 stories per week from each writer, or more if your work is of good quality. The pay is $15-20 USD per 4-5k words, based on quality . There will be increases in pay if I feel your writing is good. You agree that upon submitting your work, you surrender your rights to publish, sell, or otherwise redistribute the work, as it becomes my property.
