Being a freelance writer

Freelance writing is a profession you can undertake from your home, your office or, indeed, from anywhere in the world. It may be a full-time occupation, a part-time hobby, a second job or a lucrative career for you. Whatever your reasons for looking at freelance writing as an opportunity, being a paid writer is a demanding role but also a rewarding and fulfilling activity.

Who are our freelance writers?

Our paid writers are almost exclusively graduates with at least a 2:1 degree in one of many subjects. Many of our freelance writers are professionals with experience and/or qualifications in teaching, lecturing, editing, and marking. We have a good number of lawyers and business consultants on our books, as well as several well-respected authors who regularly contribute to popular journals.

If you have a degree at 2:1 standard or the equivalent, research skills, a good standard of writing and some time to spare, freelance writing could be for you.

The freelance writing process

As a writer for Academic Knowledge, you will receive regular emails from us with details of writing projects that our customers need to be completed. You select which writing projects you are interested in, based on the details of the project, the fee and the due date. We then assign the project to the most suitable writer.

Why be a freelance writer?

There are many benefits of being a freelance writer:

  • Freelance writing is completely flexible – work if and when you want.
  • As a freelance writer, you’ll get to learn as you write – you’re constantly researching and updating your knowledge in your specialist area.

You’ll gain knowledge and experience dealing with both simple and complex projects (as you choose), and you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that your well-researched, well-written work is helping to further the knowledge, understanding and advancement of both undergraduate and post-graduate academics, and other business professionals, worldwide.
