Prose Media (www.prosemedia.com) is a unique writing agency which creates custom content for corporate and nonprofit clients. We are looking for experienced freelance writers, ideally with paid experience (freelance or in-house) writing for publications or brands. Payment is made on a per-project freelance basis.

We prefer you have solid background in writing at least one of our main content types: Blog posts, white papers, e-books, social media updates, marketing e-mails, website copy, product descriptions, newsletters, press releases, grant proposals, technical writing, executive speeches, and/or books.

Also, while we appreciate generalists, we are especially interested in writers with specific background expertise in one or several industries – e.g., tech, finance, health care.

We are a private agency, not a freelance marketplace, so there is no “bidding” on gigs. Once accepted, writers are contacted whenever we feel they’re right for a particular project. (Note: As an early-stage service aiming to build a diverse talent base, we have more writers than we do available work. However, writers in our network are regularly considered for new projects.)

We are committed to paying writers fair rates based on industry benchmarks. Naturally, rates are also determined by current market conditions and clients’ individual budgets. While some projects allow us to pay $0.50 to $0.75 or more per word, many projects fall in the range of $0.08 to $0.15 per word (e.g., $30 to $50 for a 400-word blog post). On the application, you may specify a minimum rate; if accepted, you will be considered only for projects above that threshold.

Please apply online via our website: www.prosemedia.com/write-with-us. Please do not apply via e-mail.

Note: If you haven’t the experience for this position, consider becoming an intern (intern@prosemedia.com).
