Love to write? Want to work remotely? We’re looking for general interest freelance writers and for a part-time news writer, and we’d like to hear from you.

Freelance Contract Writers – Remote Position

We need smart, curious, detail-oriented writers who are comfortable researching and writing about several different topics. This is an ongoing freelance position, and we’re looking for writers who can start immediately.

In particular, we’re looking for experienced writers in the following areas:

  • History (general, obscure biographies, little-known topics)
  • Archaeology, Anthropology, Sociology
  • Science (Life Sciences, Applied Sciences)
  • Literature and Language
  • History of Technology and Gadgets

And don’t worry if you don’t have experience in all those topics. Even if you can write about one or two of them, we want to hear from you. Whatever your focus, we’re looking for engaging, fun, thoughtful, and original content. You should be able to take any topic, find the interesting bits, and share it with a lay audience.

All of our writers should have the following qualities:

  • You must have experience writing in at least one of the topics above. We will be looking at writing samples, so please provide them with your application.
  • You must be creative and able to generate article ideas, take suggestions, and make topics interesting and exciting.
  • You must show strong attention to detail with emphasis on accuracy and quality, including the ability to cite reliable sources for your material.
  • You must be at least 18 years old and have your own computer.
  • You must be able to write several articles per week on an ongoing basis.

This is a freelance position. We pay on a per article basis, and we’re looking for people that can contribute regularly. We’ll work with you to figure out how many articles you’d be able to write for us each week, but after that, we’d expect regular weekly contributions.
