Freelance writers needed to draft expert testimonials for fine artists on behalf of fine art experts (curators, critics, etc.) Our clients also occasionally include professionals in other creative fields, such as architecture, fashion, design, photography and music.

This is a long-term position, part-time and telecommuting.

Best applicants will have extensive professional (or otherwise) writing experience, including writing on culture and a liberal arts degree from top school. The job is essentially writing multiple critical essays on the same topic. In addition to writing talent, applicant should have knowledge of and involvement with contemporary culture, as well as familiarity with art history and major figures and institutions in the art world. In addition to discussing art, applicant should be able to approach the same subject in five different ways for five separate testimonials--

This is a good fit for someone who when they know a subject can write about it easily and well--and enjoys doing it.

We provide extensive material from and about the client and expert you can use to draft the letters. Completed testimonials will be provided to the experts as drafts for their review and signature.

The pay will be by word and assignment, but should work out to around $35 an hour (as a guideline) once the writer is familiar with the format. Letters will be between 400 and 1000 words, and each assignment will require six to ten letters. The turnaround time for an assignment must be under ten days. This is not a full time job, however there is the potential to write ten letters or more in a given week if the applicant proves to be an excellent writer and is able to meet deadlines consistently.

All successful candidates for this position must have a valid social security number and be either American or permanent residents. Please provide a resume and A COVER LETTER (important, please paste in the body of the email), as well as relevant writing samples (best is a positive review of something in the cultural realm) and a CV. The cover letter should give a brief description of your relevant experience, including experience writing in a professional context and producing regular writing on deadline. Please also provide samples of writing about art or a related subject. The top candidates will be given an assignment and will be given a stipend for their submission. Effective test letters lead to further assignments.

Please also note in the cover letter if you have particular knowledge of or interest in the architecture, fashion, design, photography or music fields.

Applicants from outside of New York are welcome. It is a telecommuting position.
