700 words = $35

1000 words = $50

Interested parties should submit: a) their resume; b) two writing samples (preferably consumer-facing web content); and c) a custom cover letter. Within your cover letter, you must
answer these questions:
1. What do you believe is unique to web writing compared to other forms of writing?
2. What do you believe makes a trustworthy online source of information?
3. How do you identify the reader's stage of the buying cycle?
4. How do you identify what information is most important to the reader for a given topic?
Applicants who do not answer these 4 questions in their cover letter will not be considered.
**YOU MUST ALSO COMPLETE A NON-PAID WRITING TEST ON A LEGAL TOPIC OF OUR CHOICE**
Thank you, and we look forward to receiving your responses!
