Bookbright Media has immediate need for freelance researchers and fact-checkers to review social science essays designed for high school students. This will be a recurring project with a predictable monthly schedule for the right candidate.
We’re looking for conscientious readers who understand academic standards of scholarship and can find the answer to anything. You do NOT have to be an expert in the subject matter. But you do have to be an expert at checking for factual errors and unreliable information, and being precise about what is and is not true. Must be willing to read about and be impartial on a wide range of controversial topics such as abortion, drug use, national politics, and religious expression.
WHAT YOU’LL DO
• Verify that all writing adheres to client standards of factual accuracy and clarity.
• Creatively solve information needs in limited time.
• Evaluate use of source materials and suggest supplemental sources as needed.
• Recommend edits to editorial staff to bring erroneous material in line with fact.
This is a single-project offer with the possibility of extending to a regular monthly engagement. A skills test will be administered before any assignment can be offered.
Compensation: $50/essay (1500 to 2000 words)
