Remote Freelance Writer to Simplify Legalese

April 29, 2024

Job Description

We’re seeking dependable, skilled freelance writers who have a passion for covering a diverse array of subjects, with a particular focus on legal topics.

The majority of our assignments pertain to legal matters, all of which are introductory level and not of an academic nature.

Your tasks will vary widely, from elucidating the necessity of specific legal contracts for businesses to crafting checklist-style articles recommending the best tools for enhancing sales in an e-commerce setting.

Regarding the nature of the work:

  • We prioritize high-quality content that goes beyond simple text, preferring well-researched pieces that educate our audience. This includes incorporating images, links, quotes from research papers, and expert opinions.
  • Our articles typically exceed 1000 words and often range around 2000 words, occasionally extending beyond 10,000 words.
  • Our goal is not to manipulate search engine algorithms but to serve as informative guides to our audience regarding the legal aspects they seek clarification on.
  • We strive to offer consistent assignments to writers available for at least one day per week, with no micromanagement of workload.
  • Clear instructions, including topics, proposed structures, deadlines, and minimum length requirements, are provided for each article. While there may be some back-and-forth communication during the revision process, writers are primarily responsible for drafting, submitting, revising if needed, and then publishing their work.
  • Payment is made biweekly in US dollars via PayPal or bank transfer.
  • Depending on the publication platform, efforts are made to credit writers with a byline for their work.

Job Requirements:

  • Proficiency in written English, preferably as a native speaker, or with a recognized English Proficiency qualification.
  • Strong online research skills.
  • Organizational reliability.
  • Basic technical proficiency, including familiarity with Google Docs and screenshot-taking.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Legal background or paralegal experience.

Work Environment:

  • Remote work is the norm, with no requirement for synchronized time zones.
  • Collaboration primarily occurs through Google Docs and email.

Application Process: Interested candidates should email with the following:

  • A brief introduction (4-5 sentences) outlining why they believe they are suitable for the position.
  • Three URLs showcasing previous work related to internet laws or technology.
  • Freelance writing rates (per word).

It’s crucial to format the subject line as follows: Your Name | Freelance Writer | WeWorkRemotely (e.g., John Doe | Freelance Writer | WeWorkRemotely) to ensure that your email is properly received and processed by our editor.

We eagerly anticipate your application!
