The sought after content writing can be opinion, best practices, information, and policy analysis pieces.
The contractor is hiring freelancers interested in economic and community development issues with particular emphasis on addressing these issues as relevant to small communities.
The web site [login to view URL] exists to stimulate conversation around issues relevant to the US Virgin Islands community particularly, but with broader application to small and rural communities in the Caribbean and the United States.
The site exists in two parts: longer stand-alone articles and shorter forum conversations on topics that impact community well-being and development. Categories for conversation include government management, economic development, education and training, community development and others (please see site).
Interested writers should familiarize themselves with the site and its content and produce content consistent with the stated objectives of the site.
The Contractor is not limiting the way the writer chooses to interact with the content material. Writers are encouraged to be challenging and controversial both in topics and presentation of opinion and material. Content, however, must be accurate, factual and source-credited, where appropriate. The contractor will remove any content that does not meet these standards and will not compensate for any material that is removed from the site because of a failure to adhere to these standards.
The writers are asked to register and post directly to the forum site. Longer articles for posting on the Archive page must be submitted via email to the site Administrator for review , illustrating, and posting. Each will be compensated consistent with terms agreed to at the onset of their engagement.
There are online newspapers from which the writers can understand issues important to the Virgin Islands community([login to view URL] ; [login to view URL]). The Administrator can provide other source material. Writers should take the lead from these news pieces, articles and content already on the site when developing their own product, which they believe will be of interest and produce engagement with the target community.
The assignment is for a three month period but can extend. The expectation is at least two archive piece ( 850 words) or three forum post (550 words) monthly. The word count is the minimum expected.
The writer will be acknowledged as the author, however, the content is the property of the site with all rights to reuse in any manner consistent with the policy of the site.
The contractor envisions engaging several writers to work on this assignment.
Please provide two examples of relevant writing style.
Business terms will be individually negotiated.
