Backpacking Mastery is hiring a team of 5 writers to create articles for backpackingmastery.com. We want to build this site into the ultimate place for anyone interested in hiking, whether they’re beginners or seasoned professionals. We’re looking for experienced hiking enthusiasts with good knowledge to share, but it’s okay if you’re just a passionate hobbyist without a lot of experience.
If you’d like to get paid for your knowledge and earn a little extra to pay for your hobby, then this is a great opportunity.
PAYMENT. We pay $0.02 per word, and our articles are all either 1,000, 2,000, or 3,000 words in length. So you’ll be paid either $20, $40, or $60 per article depending on the length. Article lengths are assigned based on the topic, so you’ll know up-front how much you’ll be paid for your efforts.
CREDIT. Writers will have their bio appear on their articles and you can mention a social media profile in that bio if you choose to build up an audience over time. However, some articles may be requested to be ghost-written.
SCHEDULE. We look for writers who can produce three articles per month. For most freelance writers, three articles per month is perfect so they have plenty of time to work on it without being overwhelmed, but writers can almost always pick up additional articles to write if you’d like more work. You can write articles at your leisure and schedule the article to automatically post on the morning of your publishing date.
OWNERSHIP. You understand and agree that all photos, videos, written content, and all other media submitted to BackpackingMastery.com becomes the exclusive property of BackpackingMastery.com and you do not have the right to republish that content on your own site.
Ready? Apply below. We will contact successful candidates on a rolling basis as spots are open. Watch for an email from us.
