compensation: US$15-25 p/article

Writing you now is the managing editor for a well-established language company looking for a part-time writer that will help contribute to our language blog on a regular basis (2-4 posts a month).

Although I'm happy for anyone to apply, I would prefer that the writers possess the following characteristics:
• Native English speaker (can be near-native, but I don't want to have to edit grammar or horribly constructed sentences)
• Someone who enjoys writing about language-related topics, as all blogs are oriented to language
• Someone who, reiterating, writes well without having to correct grammar, structure, spelling, etc. I want to be able to correct the little things like tone, dialect, and commas, but should not have to spend very long defining your message.
• Someone who either:
1) already has a full-time job and wants to complement it with some pleasure writing that also provides supplemental
2) already writes freelance and, again, wants to supplement their income slightly

• You will work directly with me. I highly encourage creativity, freedom, and deadline flexibility. To me, the most important thing is quality.
• You will write 1-2 articles per week, meaning that you will not be earning a ton. Instead you will get exposure and credit on social media (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+) and hopefully establish a long-term relationship with me and the company.
• You will be familiar with using Google Docs
• You will be paid at the end of every month and rates will depend upon the length of your pieces (generally between 500-1200 words) and the amount of creativity applied.
• Payment for work will generally vary between $15-$25 PER ARTICLE and will be discussed and decided before publication. Again, I want about an article a week, meaning that you will not be earning probably more than $100 per month.

Areas of focus for the blog can include but are not limited to:
• Language research
• Language learning
• Technology and language
• Environment and language
• Fashion and language
• Culture
• Travel
• Business and language
• Grammar
The list can go on and on. Please note that if your work doesn't fit neatly into one of the aforementioned categories, that is okay. As long as it is insightful, thought-provoking, and, most importantly, language-oriented, no subject is off limits. I am open-minded and want to entertain, inform, and inspire.

To apply, please send me your CV with "I love language" in the subject line. Feel free to write a small description about yourself, your language background, and attach two samples of your writing--your personal blog or an already posted article is completely suitable. Be creative, don't attach a generic cover letter, and I will be in touch with you ASAP.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
