The Writing Company (TWC) is an editorial agency based in Portland, Maine. We write content marketing, thought leadership, journalism and other materials about finance, business, health care and tech.
Role: We are looking for experienced freelance writers who can work with us 5-15 hours/week on an ongoing basis. We are interested in talented writers who have 3+ years of professional writing experience in U.S. English, work efficiently, appreciate constructive feedback and enjoy being part of a collaborative community. Project and client management experience a plus.
Location: Remote, U.S.-based
Benefits of working with TWC:
Professional growth. We are a teaching and learning community. You will have the opportunity to write and learn about a broad array of subject matter and to improve your writing, editing and project management skills through collaboration with our senior editorial team.
Community. Freelance writing can be a lonely endeavor. When you work with us, you become part of a community of people who value collaboration, diversity, mutual respect, curiosity, learning, collegiality and good work.
Steady work. Over our 28+ years we have built a deep network of strong client relationships; we line up the work so you don’t have to.
Flexibility. Our preference is for writers who can work with us at least five hours per week on a consistent basis. That said, we know that your availability isn’t always predictable, and at times you may have to prioritize other work (or not working!). Our model is built to support that kind of flexibility.
Compensation: We pay our writers by the hour, which means you get paid for all your time, including research and conversations with the assigning editor. The stronger your skill set and the more efficiently you work, the more we can afford to pay you. Our minimum starting rate is $35/hour for writers who have 3+ years of professional experience writing about finance, business, health care or tech. We pay higher rates to writers who have greater experience, skills, expertise and efficiency. You send us an invoice monthly and we pay you within two weeks via direct deposit.
TWC is an equal opportunity employer. We are committed to building and supporting a team with diverse backgrounds, perspectives and skills. We value diversity and inclusion because it creates a positive environment for all our people, strengthens our community and improves our work.
