Description

An example of the writer's responsibilities:

'Here are our exact expectations. Every other week, we require that you write five articles that are a little heavy-duty in terms of research (Do you have a specialty to write about and publish?). - we ask that you reach out to featured organizations for assistance-to-detail. These articles are Top 10 lists of restaurants, bars, things to see & do within neighborhoods within certain cities.

Every other week, we require [technology and entertainment] articles that require less research and are shorter, and are therefore much quicker to write. Conclusively, this position amounts to applying up to 15-25 hours per week (if promoted to entry level from internship)--producing up to 25 articles per month. All work will be done from home.

Here is a short assignment to complete your application - we just need to see if you can work within our style parameters. Please take a look at some Best 10 or Best off articles on an example website: write a shorter, mock article in that style, mimicking formatting details as best as possible (including Price/Opening hours/etc., if applicable). Please ONLY write 3 LIST ITEMS - we just need a small glimpse, not a full article. This mock article can be about any subject in any city. Please have this [rewrite] writing sample ready.'
