Do you love writing and editing books?
Do you really enjoy helping awesome people create their books?
Are you tired of the normal freelancer bullshit, and want something more?
If this sounds like you, we’ve got your perfect role.
We call this role “Scribe,” but you could compare it to a “ghostwriter” or possibly even “co-writer.”
We’ve developed an interview-based book writing process that’s different than most book writing processes. (It’s not ghostwriting. This gives a pretty good high-level explanation of our process.)
We think our process is pretty cool, our Authors like it a lot, and the Scribes who work with us do tend to write faster and better because of it.
But, let’s be honest: our process is not why you want to work with us.
So why do you?
Because we’re offering a better way for most freelance writers and editors to work. Think about how most freelancing goes:
You probably started freelance writing and editing because you enjoyed helping people turn their ideas into impactful words—but how much time do you spend doing that? Doesn’t it seem like you hardly ever work with people you like on books that you’re interested in, because you’re busy with the crappy gigs that pay the bills?
What about the admin work? Does it seem like all your time is spent on the tedious “business” of freelancing instead of the writing and editing you enjoy?
And the inconsistency. It’s a cycle of famine-feast-famine, right? When was the last time you had a consistent flow of work you could plan around?
None of this even mentions the treatment. Does it ever feel like people look at you as less than human, just because you’re a freelancer? They make constant and often irrational demands that require you to give everything, and then treat you like you’re disposable.
Well, what if you didn’t have these problems?
What if you had an essentially unlimited number of really great authors and interesting books you could pick from, didn’t have to worry about any of the “admin work,” and could only focus on writing—and you got the support and resources of an entire company to help you create the best possible book?
And perhaps most important: what if you got that all while still making good money?
It might sound too good to be true, but it’s not. This is what we try to create with the Scribe role.
It’s a dream freelance gig for high-level and experienced editors and writers. You’ll work with and learn from world-class experts, build intimate relationships, and help them record their wisdom into important books that are incredibly valuable to other people.
The best part is that you only spend time on the things you like. You’ll be interviewing, writing, and editing. You won’t have to spend any time finding clients, negotiating your pay, arguing over scope of work, getting them to actually send the check, endless “one more change” revisions, etc—none of it.
Instead, we handle that. When you work with us, you see several book projects a week you can bid on, you only bid on the books you’re interested in, and once you get a project, you have a huge amount of latitude to do the writing work (within the boundaries of our process), and you ONLY worry about writing and editing—nothing else.
You’ll spend a period of four months working on each book project. You’ll really get into the topic, become a mini-expert, and create a substantial book. You’ll get paid regularly throughout the project based on the hours you spend working. When you’re done, you move on to the next project, with your money in your account quickly, guaranteed.
