Title: Seeking Experienced Freelance Writers
Description: A next-generation digital publishing company seeks versatile and experienced writers for long-term freelance work.

On a weekly basis, Instaread commissions writers to read nonfiction books from such varied genres as arts, business, technology, finance, health, politics, religion, sports, self-help, etc. Writers are paid to produce a report on each book's key concepts and insights, using our 4000-word template. All assigned texts are supplied electronically.

Freelance Position - paying $700 per report.




Requirements: Writers must be able to summarize arguments and concepts in a succinct and engaging way. They must offer context and analysis for each of the key insights they identify. This often requires independent research.

We hire writers who have published in high-profile magazines or who have a long track record of success in journalism. We can only consider writers who will commit to weekly deadlines (i.e., one book and report per week).
Company: INSTAREAD
Location: California
How To Apply For This Job: Please send a standard resume and a cover letter detailing relevant experience to queries@instaread.co. Include PDFs or links to two specific, sample publications with your materials; these should demonstrate your style and flexibility as a writer. After a review of materials, candidates will be asked to complete a short follow-up assignment.
