Project Description

Article Writing Spec Sheet

I am seeking a writer who can write informative, interesting, if not fascinating articles on various

consumer-oriented subjects. If you are very good at writing about diverse subjects and enjoy this

kind of writing, then we will enjoy working together.

The project consists of:

Writing new articles for specific keyword phrases that I provide to you. The articles will be in

a simple text format (*.txt). I will supply a topic and a list of keyword phrases to base the

writing of new articles on. The length of each article should be a minimum of 500 words and

up to 800 (or a bit longer if necessary). The finished articles must be delivered free of

spelling errors and grammatically correct.

Each new article will consist of:

1. A headline

2. A sub-headline (tag line)

3. Body copy

The main keyword phrase must be contained in the title of the article and in the first and last

sentence of the article. Derivatives of the keyword phrase along with other related keywords (i.e.

in the keyword list provided to you) should also be used a number of times in the main body of

the article, but all additional usage should be natural and not forced. In other words, just write

the article as if you are not trying to incorporate the keywords, but afterwards make sure that

some of them made it into the body copy.

I will request that each writer submit a sample article for a keyword phrase that I will supply.

Each candidate will be paid $5 for their sample submission and the final candidate(s) will be

chosen based on their writing sample. These articles are to be written for everyday consumers,

therefore, each article should avoid technical terms or explain technical terms with simple

examples. Each article must be interesting and /or fascinating and provide the reader helpful

hints or tips which they implement regarding the subject matter. Each article must provide at

least one piece of information that is not common knowledge. Each article must absolutely be

original. The style and voice of the article should be interesting, conversational, filled with

everyday language and expressions. These articles are written for Middle America and you will

lose points for demonstrating your use of vocabulary words found on the SAT exam. You should

explain things like explaining them to a child without talking down to the reader. I will provide

my own example of an article that I've written as a template for the type of writing I am looking
