“The advantage of collaborative writing is that you end up with something for which you will not be personally blamed.”—Scott Adams
This is a unique job, for unique writers. The client is a well-off individual, the owner of a boring software company. To compensate for that, he writes long, in-depth articles for his blog, Vice Motherboard or scripts for his YouTube channel. The problem is that he writes slowly, has little time, and has another 50+ ideas for unfinished articles. This is where you come in.
Your job will be to meet the client in Prenzlauer Berg, Berlin, and collaboratively work on new writing projects. The client will provide you with an idea, the reasoning behind an article, and an outline of a text. Your creative neurons will then do the magic of converting the rough idea into a popular article that will be loved and shared by geeks worldwide. This is not ghostwriting; you are going to be co-author on the piece. The salary starts from 260 EUR per thousand words.
Sounds interesting? However, there are some requirements you need to fulfill:
- You need to be a better writer than the client. “Better” is a subjective term, but the number of readers and shares is not. Be prepared to show your best work and their impact.
- You need to be on the geeky/science/philosophy side. If you noticed, all the articles above are non-fiction, and deep into geek culture.
- You need to be funnier than the client. That is not going to be hard.
- Native or near-native English writing skills.
And to recap, the benefits are:
- 20 hours per week (half-time position).
- Location in Prenzlauer Berg, Berlin.
- Working on a variety of interesting tech and science topics.
- Competitive salary, starting from 260 EUR per thousand words.
