This is an exciting opportunity for freelance writers to promote their name and writing skills.
As a part of an ongoing project, I am looking for writers/researchers to write a 40-50 page Self-Help Guide aimed to empower migrants settling in Melbourne.
What is the offer?
- Unlike my previous publications, which I will mention below, for this book, I intend to give credit to the contributing author and have his/her details published in the book.
For this reason, I seek freelancers who are actually in Australia and have the local knowledge of the city in question. Besides, he or she would ideally be a migrant who has seen the initial challenges of settling in Australia first hand.
- I will give a one-time payment on completion of the job
- I will also offer a percentage of profits from the book sales
Why would I want to include the Freelancer's name in the book?
As I mentioned, this is a long-term project and through my company, Migrant Ninja, I eventually intend to publish a range of books that will help skilled migrants in their settlement journey.
I do believe that the recognition gained will be immense and this opportunity to have your name in print is something that should drive the writer to come out with in-depth and well-researched content
What does the Migrant Ninja do?
My website is - [url removed, login to view]
I have created this platform to help all skilled migrants to Australia by providing ebooks and print books on far-ranging topics that will help them during their initial settling-in phase.
So far I have covered books on handling finances, on Jobs (which is available in print) and on Sydney.
All the books are available on Amazon and all major retailers around the world.
Besides, I am also offering my readers some free PDF's all the time.
What should the book contain?
Attached is the cover page of my latest book - Sydney City Guide.
As far as content goes, without giving away too much, here is what the Sydney guide contains:
1. SYDNEY – AN INTRODUCTION
2. FACTS AND STATISTICS
3. GETTING HERE
4. SYDNEY SUBURBS
5. RENTING IN SYDNEY
6. ESSENTIAL SERVICES
7. TRANSPORT & GETTING AROUND
8. CRIME AND SAFETY
9. SCHOOLING AND EDUCATION
11. COMMUNITY, ENTERTAINMENT, EVENTS
12. RECREATION AND TOURISM
13. MULTICULTURAL DIRECTORY AND COMMUNITY LINKS
14. PLACES OF WORSHIP
15. NATURAL HAZARDS AND SAFETY ADVICE
16. GROCERY SHOPPING & EATING OUT
18. ADDITIONAL RESOURCES AND WEBSITES
As this project will bear your name, I will give you a fairly free run and expect a lot of input and suggestions from your side.
What are the expectations?
The book should be well researched and cater to a readership of skilled migrants from various backgrounds who intend to set up their new life in Melbourne. All information provided should be current, the content should not be subject to any copyright and the should be primarily be sourced from official or recognised sources. Handy links and quick references to be provided so that the reader can do their own further research. Generic content which will notadd any value to the reader is not acceptable.
What is my (Migrant Ninja's) involvement?
I will oversee the project, make recommendations for changes, provide any content from my earlier books which may have relevance to this project and bring the whole book together.
If this project is something you would like to sink your teeth in to, drop me a line and we can take it further. If money is the only driving purpose then this may not be the project for you. I want someone who wants to further their own name, is willing to consider a long term collaboration and would take pride in the final product.
