Project Description:
Science and Technology Article Research/Writing/Enhancing

Looking for a person with a science-fiction/future orientation to take outlines and starter material for fact-based articles and enhance them with web-based research and public-domain images. As the budget for the position is $120.00/Mo paid weekly ($1,500/Yr), the ideal candidate will be a person with excellent written English skills able to accept this amount for a part-time effort. Your bid price should be $1,500 and is non-negotiable though it should not be construed as anything but a week to week contract based on mutual compatibility and choice. Candidate differentiation and selection will be based on the writing strength of the submission as well as any examples/links to work received via that and PMB.

ABOUT THE POSITION(S)

- Outlines and starter material will be supplied to ensure articles fit in with site objectives and scope.
- An interest in the topic(s) is helpful and an exchange of ideas encouraged for creativity and mutually fresh perspectives.

- Copyright for material will belong to site owner.
- Part-time position budgeted annually at $1,500 US, paid in weekly installments as a contractor.
