Our Requirements

We are looking for romance writers with at least a good basic skill level and a good understanding of the conventions of the romance subgenre as a whole, and of your preferred romance themes. Here's what's required to be part of our team:

- You write amazing romance stories. With a lot of tension, suspense, great dialogue, and good character development and characterization.
- You are US/CAN based, or US/CAN citizen living outside the country.
- You can work with deadlines. We typically deliver 15k words in 1 week/ week and a half.
- You are knowledgeable in your preferred romance subgenres, themes/tropes. You understand the readers, you understand basic conventions that make a subgenre/theme/etc and you can write to market.
- You take pride in your writing and can consistently deliver high-quality novels. You focus on delivering what the reader and client want.
- You are looking for a long-term gig and are eager & available to start.
- You are available throughout the day to respond to team and client messages on our platform.
- You are reliable, well-spoken, open to constructive criticism and a good communicator.


Few things to consider before applying

Important: When applying you will be asked to select up to 3 of your best subgenres. Choose the subgenres you most enjoy and know most about (conventions, typical characters, etc). Please submit a sample for each subgenre you select. If you are successful, we will hire you for 1, 2 or all 3 of your chosen subgenres based on your ability to write and your understanding of each subgenre's conventions. We put a lot of emphasis on this as it's vital to understand what the reader wants.

We will also prioritize you that can commit for at least 3-6 months. This is because we love to establish long-term relationships with our team and also because our clients love to create a series of projects with the same writer. Once expectations are clear with a client, you can expect awesome projects to keep flowing your way. This requires a basic commitment of 3 months or so.

Also, you must be able to sit down and write in order to meet deadlines. Good planning should make this easier. Again, availability throughout the day to respond to messages on our platform is essential.

Finally, you must be okay with not getting official credit for your writing as this is a ghostwriting position.
