Reasons to become a writer

Work from Home

…or anywhere in the world. Freelance writing is unique in that it adapts to your lifestyle – you can fit working around looking after the kids, running daily errands, or travelling abroad. Take as much or as little work as suits your lifestyle.

Utilise your degree

Many new graduates find it difficult to gain employment in their field of study immediately. By becoming a freelance writer for us, you can not only use your degree, but you’ll be practising and reinforcing your own knowledge.

Share your knowledge

Knowledge is meant to be shared – so share your expertise and experience with those who need it most. Refine your own academic skills, help others hone theirs, and earn some of the best pay rates in the industry while doing it.

Since 2003, we’ve been helping thousands of people to successfully complete all types of research and writing projects. We’re proud to cover virtually every subject area, and we’re rapidly expanding into Australia and the US.

By becoming a freelance writer you’ll have an unparalleled degree of flexibility when it comes to working. You can choose to work wherever you like, and take on as much work as you wish. You’ll be reinforcing your own knowledge and skills, while passing on your expertise to those who need your help.

Prospective applicants should hold a minimum Bachelor’s/Undergraduate 2:1 degree (or the Australian or US equivalent) and have an excellent command of the English language. Your application will be assessed based upon your qualifications, spelling and grammar skills, and satisfactory completion of a test piece of work.

Our Customers

Our clients are typically students, often international, looking for that extra level of support to help with their studies. They often have an urgent deadline to meet, or are simply struggling with the work they have to complete. This may include, for example, business reports, marketing reports, business research, presentations, technical writing projects, dissertations, revision material and much, much more.

The typical working deadline is 5 days, but we can offer work within 3 or 6 office hour delivery, for urgent requests. We aim to provide the ultimate study support service by delivering research and model answers that help students to fully understand what they are learning. We retain the copyright to all work we produce, to ensure our work is not misused.
