Our websites focus on original, viral, and multi-source aggregated news pieces in various areas of interest, including health, science, tech, sports, national and international news, and much more.
Starting pay is $5 per post for aggregated pieces. These stories typically take around 20-25 minutes to write. Average starting pay is $10-$15 per hour depending on the efficiency of your writing skills.
When applying please tell us which areas you are interested in writing.
1. Must have an excellent understanding of Wordpress.
2. Must be a U.S. Citizen (this will be verified).
3. English MUST be your first language.
4. Basic understanding of DMCA laws in regards to print and photo copyrights.
5. Understanding of what it takes to create a good, quote worthy, news story.
Please note: This is very steady work, we need thousands of stories created monthly. For that reason we need writers who can provide content on a very steady daily basis. We are looking for weekday and weekend writers.
Promotions available as you prove yourself to be a top-notch news writer and viral story finder.
We DO NOT force a minimum word count on our writers. If a story breaks and only 200 words are required, you can write a 200 word news piece. With that being said if a political speech requires more quotes and other information a longer piece may be required. We find that a mix of long form and short form will keep your words per post around 250-350 words.
How To Apply
If you don't have news writing experience create a 300 word story around a breaking event based on the day you are sending in your application.
