What do writers do?

“Writers and authors develop written content for advertisements, books, magazines, movie and television scripts, songs, blogs, or other types of media.” — U.S. Bureau of labor statistics.

Requirements for being a writer

Anyone with strong writing skills, a desire to share his or her experiences or knowledge with others, and a passion for developing written content can become a writer.

Employment facts

As of 2015, the BLS reports that nationwide there are around 43,380 people employed as writers. Earning a mean hourly wage of $33.24 and an annual average of $69,120. Most were employed in the public relations, advertising, or related industries. It expects growth for the industry to be 2 percent annually until 2024. In 2014, 2 out of 3 writers were self-employed, and competition is increasing because more and more people are being drawn to the field.

More sites to consider

Hands down one of the best sites for freelance jobs.



Essay writing sites:

Pays well; professional, plenty of work, and you must adhere to strict guidelines and deadlines. “We pay our contracted, freelance writers up to $15.00 per page (1 page = 300 words) depending on the amount of time allowed to complete the project. Many of our full-time writers earn well over $50,000 per year. However, most writer make $9-12 per page.”

This is very similar to essay shark. Prices can start from $7.5 per page and you can be paid via Paypal and others. Good policies

Pays $10 per page via Paypal. One of the most popular sites. From the reviews I’ve read, it’s fair but you’re expected to produce quality work.

Homework projects site:

Academic papers and research projects:

A freelance company based in the U.K. The overall reviews seem to be positive and the negative comments usual relate to IT problems and not to pay. The site says that papers written by writers with ESL earns $15/page, and those written by ENL writers gets $26/page. However, I’ve seen reviews that say it’s more like $7-10 per page. Pay received through Paypal, Payoneer, and others.

Pay rate is low. There are two levels of writers: "Regulars" who receive $3 and up per page, but can improve their ranking by completing at “least 15 orders with positive feedbacks from our clients.” The there are the “premiums”. These writers can start at $4 per page go up to $17.50 per page. Payment is given out twice a month but the company says that it can hold payment for two weeks to get custom’s feedback.

Pays on time and the rate seems fair. However, like many other writing services, work can become scarce at times.

More on their payment
Before you get paid for the job done, you have to wait 20 days for clearance. This is to ensure the customer’s satisfaction. After the clearance, you’re paid twice a month via Paypal (no minimum payout), Payoneer ($20 minimum balance), or wire transfer (minimum of $100).

What are your requirements? From company’s site
BA or BSc degree or higher.
Strong command of the English language.
Good writing and research skills.
Ability to check emails at least 3 times a day and respond to phone calls.
Ability to meet deadlines.

Payment terms go here 
They have a wide range of subject matter to choose from, and work seems to be plentiful and reliable but they demand quality writing. Have to upload a scan of your certificate. I could find anything about exact pay rate but the site does say that the top writer made $6462 in a month.

U.K. based company. Seems to be a good company to work for and the pay is good. However, consistent work can be hard to find.
