After several years of operating this blog, I came to realize that I still have so much information to share with the natural hair community. But sadly, I don’t have enough time to write it all. So I’ve decided that it’s time to bring in some writers who are just as passionate about Black hair and beauty as I am!
How it’ll work
At this point, I’ll come up with a headline for the articles that needs to be written, and you’ll be given the freedom to research and write them. For each article, I’ll specify how many words it should be, then, when you’ve finished writing and editing it, I’ll look it over and when I think it’s ready, I’ll publish it. I only accept original articles that hasn’t been published elsewhere and won’t be published elsewhere.
For most articles on the blog, I usually target about 1,500-2,000 words. For these articles, the pay is 2 cents per word which comes out to $30-40 for articles that we publish. As you gain experience writing for Coils and Glory, you’ll get more flexibility in choosing your own topics and outlining and writing articles as you like. As we move in that direction, your pay will increase.
What I’m looking for in writers
I’m not looking for guest bloggers or to hire full-time employees. I just want to pay you for the articles you write for the blog.
You don’t have to be a professional writer, but I do need writers who can use correct English spelling, grammar, and punctuation. I write in a conversational tone, and I’d like to maintain that consistency; so you don’t need to sound like you’re writing for The New York Times or a research paper.
I’m looking for writers who can commit to writing two to four (2-4) 1,500-2,000 word articles per month and do the research that goes into them. The more articles you can write in a month, the more income you can earn.
If you have experience writing for a blog, that’s a big plus, but I’m really going to make the decisions based on a sample of your writing.
How to apply
Please email me at email@example.com with a brief introduction about yourself, why you think you will be the best writer for the blog, along with a PDF attachment of your sample article. The 1,500+ word article can be about any subject you think would be applicable to the Coils and Glory community that hasn’t been written yet. You can search through the blog to check if it has already been written. If your article is chosen for the site, you will be paid for your work.
After you’ve sent in your application, I will review it and will follow-up with chosen applicants for the next step, so I can’t guarantee that everyone will get a response. Either way, thank you for applying to write for the blog and good luck on your future endeavors!
**Ghost writing is pretty much when you write for a blog and the article will be published in the blog owners name, but as opposed to guest blogging, you will be paid for the original article you write for the blog.
