Freelance writers needed to draft expert testimonials for fine artists on behalf of experts such as curators, art critics, and gallerists. Clients will also occasionally include professionals in such fields as architecture, fashion, design, photography and music (and we write for experts in those fields).
This is a long-term position, part-time and telecommuting. It is open to experienced and talented writers, with a good understanding of cultural industries.
Best applicants will have extensive professional (or otherwise) writing experience, including writing on culture and a liberal arts degree from top school. In addition to writing talent, applicant should have knowledge of and involvement with contemporary culture, as well as conversant in art history and major figures and institutions in the art world. In addition to discussing art, applicant should be able to approach the same subject in five different ways for five separate testimonials–the job is essentially writing multiple persuasive essays on the same topic.Read More
This is a good fit for someone who when they know a subject can write about it easily and well–and enjoys doing it.
We provide extensive material from and about the client and expert you can use to draft the letters. Completed testimonials will be provided to the experts as drafts for their review and signature.
The pay will be by word and assignment, but should work out to at least $35 an hour (as a guideline) once the writer is familiar with the format. Letters will be between 400 and 1000 words, and each assignment will require six to ten letters. The turnaround time for an assignment must be under ten days.
