We're looking for a NATIVE ENGLISH writer ONLY with experience writing short stories to write a series of 4 science fiction short stories - think post-collapse, distopias, The Walking Dead meets The Last of Us. More black comedy (Vonnegut) than anything.

You need to be able to write vividly and emotionally for normal adult readers readers about sci-fi situations. Do not apply if this bothers you.

We need 4 short stories written, approximately 10,000 words each (more words = more money). It should be a series: Same main character for all 4 stories, cliffhangers, etc.

Payment is $150 for all 4 short stories (probably more), milestone payments after each, unless you write more words per story, in which case you can earn much more. If we like your writing, we usually give bonuses as well (just look at our feedback!)

We would expect the four stories to be completed within a month or two of hiring (bonuses for quicker turnaround). This is a ghostwriting position - We will retain all rights to the work, and you must sign a statement to that effect.

Work must be 100% original. We will not tolerate plagiarism and will verify each submission to check for this and any plagiarized works will be reported and not paid for.


Please include a sample of your work, a potential overarching storyline for the 4 story series, and write "Nala" in the first line, so we know you actually read this job posting. If you can't follow these simple directions, then it's not going to work out.

Thank you for taking a look at this project and we look forward to developing a long lasting working relationship with you.

Please include a sample of your work, a potential overarching storyline for the 4 story series. I know I wrote it twice. But you'd be surprised how many people don't actually read the job description!
