Heliconia requires an experienced, outdoors-loving writer for long-term, consistent blog writing work about kayaking.

About the Work
The blog articles to be written support YouTube content from Ken Whiting's PaddleTV YouTube channel:


Ken Whiting is a World Champion kayaker, TV show host, and one of the most recognized kayakers in the world. His rapidly growing YouTube channel revolves around kayaking gear reviews, kayaking how-to/instruction, and kayaking adventures.  Heliconia is looking for a writer who can craft blog articles to support Ken's YouTube content. This will involve writing two (2) x 750-1500 word blog articles every week, throughout the year.

The job involves using Ken's video transcripts along with your own research to craft articles that effectively deliver Ken’s information in a relaxed, fun, and when possible, humorous way.

Samples of the types of articles to be written can be seen here:  https://www.paddle-tales.com/blog


  • Heliconia is looking for a talented and enthusiastic writer who can do research for articles when required, and can handle critical feedback and adjust accordingly.
  • While some kayaking experience is an asset, a high level of kayaking expertise is NOT required for this writing position. Enthusiasm and a passion for the outdoors and writing is far more important than kayaking experience.
  • Native English-speaking writer


  • Flexible deadlines
  • Consistent work with a great team
  • Opportunity for additional work

$.06/word starting, with the opportunity for raises.
