UK Travel Writers Wanted - Long Term Freelance Gig
Do you love travelling and have explored the UK? I am looking for a long term travel writer for UK content.
I run an independent travel website that creates helpful guides for travelling and moving to the UK.
I am looking to hire a UK writer who can write 1-2 articles per week on locations around the UK on a regular basis for the long term. Starting off with England and Scotland content then expanding to Wales.
Articles range from 1,500-3,500 words, with the majority being approx. 2,500 words.
This is a ghostwriting position. Your name will not be listed as the author on the articles. You will be asked to sign a freelance writing agreement as part of this role.
If you’re offered a regular writing position, you will be able to choose which articles you write from a list of articles. However, there may be times when articles will need to be prioritised.
While writing for me, you’ll need to follow specific templates that we will provide. This is not SEO-type content. All posts must show UK travel expertise and be useful for readers.
I expect you to learn quickly and produce posts that require very little editing.
For this role you must:
- Local Expertise – it’s important that you have spent time in the UK and know tips that really help travellers get to know the destination.
- Be a native English writer
- Ideally, live in the UK but can be from the United States, United Kingdom, Canada or Australia and spend good amount of time in the UK
- Be familiar with writing in WordPress
- Have a computer with internet access and Google Docs
- Communicate regularly regarding work capacity and hit agreed deadlines
You don’t need tons of experience in writing to apply. New writers who are willing to learn are welcome to apply as well.
If you are offered a writing position, I can discuss regular rates. Payment is per word in United States Dollars.
This is a freelancer position.
