You can complete as many orders as you like, as long as the complete instructions set forth by the client have been met and all orders are submitted on time. We are a fast-growing company and truly value great writers. We occasionally offer generous bonuses for writers who make an effort to pick up last minute, urgency orders. We also promote from within and take writer's experiences with us very seriously. Many of our employed staff  members have moved up our company's ranks after starting in this position.


Please apply by clicking the Apply Now button. Be sure to send your resume or CV and a cover letter. Pending review of your initial resume and application, you will be asked to write a sample paper in order to demonstrate your writing skills. In the world of online writing, a sample paper is used in lieu of an in-person interview. The sample paper is used only to gauge your writing ability. It does not get sold, published, or viewed by any party besides the hiring personnel.

Please use a personal email address with your application, not a work or school email address. Gmail is preferable. Changing contact email addresses throughout the process may cause your application to be rejected.


We have a sliding pay scale that generally runs from $7.50-22 per page. The regular freelance queue pays $7.50-13 per page, the urgency queue pays $12-19 per page, and the graduate level queue pays $11-22 per page. Applicable order bonuses are in addition to these payout ranges. Payouts are automatically set by our ordering system when the customer creates their order. The main factors affecting payouts are time frame, skill level, and whether the order requires editing or original writing. We compensate writers twice per month via PayPal, the trusted way to pay online.

Currently, we are only hiring writers who reside in the USA. We are not accepting applications for writers who reside in California, New York, or Massachusetts. If at any time during the process a security flag occurs, the application may be immediately withdrawn.
