We are looking to expand our network of writers who can produce original content on living in Taipei. The ideal candidate should already be familiar with Taipei and have first-hand experience of living there. Our audience is made up of expats who are either looking to relocate to, or are already living in, Taipei. As such, our articles aim to help inform them with a wide range of Taipei-specific information, including visa requirements, entertainment choices, travel, medical options, job opportunities, district guides, etc. Note that this job should be treated as a trial run and more work will be given if the applicant produces good, solid work. If we agree on a working relationship, the writer must also be proactive and pitch appropriate stories to us (if a story pitch is appealing, it will translate directly into another writing job). Articles should be: Informative this is key! We are not looking for opinion pieces Of original content Funny, witty, and include references to pop culture (when appropriate use your judgment) Written in excellent English with very little editing required Include website links (if and when needed) When bidding, also include: A few sentences on why you would be a good fit for our company Links to an online portfolio or past writing samples so we can see your range Our ideal candidate: Is able to research well and gather all relevant information regarding the topic Has excellent command of English and is able to write well Can follow direction well Meets deadlines and replies promptly through ELance Writing Briefs: Each article should be around 800 1,000 words Each article should be accompanied by an appropriate number of photographs which are copyright free or original, with appropriate usage permissions transferred to us. Unless agreed otherwise, GeoClicks will retain exclusive ownership and usage rights on the article. Topics: Top 10 places for expats to live in Taipei Keep in mind: families with children, singles, young couples (no children), mature couples (retired with independent children living elsewhere) This is 10 in total, not 10 for each sub-group List the areas and explain what makes them so appealing (environment, location, convenience, etc.) Popular job options for foreigners and how to get them (visas, etc.) Name a few of the most popular jobs expats hold in Taipei What sort of visa do they hold? And how do they get them? This is to inform people who are looking to relocate in Taipei on what sort of jobs they can apply for Feel free to add any additional story pitches that you feel might convince us to engage with you on a long term basis, beyond this project.
