Are you an experienced writer with a background in literary analysis? A current or former teacher of English literature? Or an advanced degree holder in a literature-related field? If so, then this is the perfect freelance writing opportunity for you.
SuperSummary is a provider of academic study guides that help students understand and analyze the books that they are reading in class. This year, we are looking to expand rapidly by hiring a group of talented writers to create new study guides for a list of modern and classic books.
• Our study guides have a length of approximately 10,000-12,000 words
• Standard sections include chapter summaries and analyses, as well as discussion of major characters, themes, symbols, important quotations, and possible essay topics
• We offer competitive compensation and typically expect our writers to be able to complete one study guide every 3 weeks
• Education: BA/BS in English, English Literature, Comparative Literature, Creative Writing, or a related field; Masters or PhD considered favorably.
• Teaching experience in English/English literature is a huge plus (although not required)
• Extensive previous experience with literary analysis and academic writing/editing is a must
Ultimately, we are looking for writers who are interested in a long-term relationship with us that would involve working on several study guides this year. If this project sounds like a good match for your skills and interests, we hope to hear from you soon.
