Greetings! We produce lesson readers for children and are looking for a writer who could write these for us.

Typical lesson length is approx. 1,000 words;
Lessons are split up in four or five approx. equal length paragraphs;
Lessons topics are provided by us, but cover familiar general interest topics;
The closing paragraph always concludes with some character training related concepts.

The lessons are educational, and thus require some research on the topic in Wikipedia and other open sources. The idea is to grow a child's love and appreciation for life.

The actual writing of each paragraph does require a submission into an online form at a web address we provide, where the text is automatically proofed/tested on "new words contents".

Successful candidate will enjoy regular assignments building up to approximately a total volume or total writing assignment word count of circa 38,000 words.

Attached are two example lessons.

Work can commence as soon as we reach agreement.
