Two announcements have gone out about some writing opportunities for genealogists.
First, the genealogy website Archives.com is looking for new writers. Their announcement reads,
The Expert Series is a collection of articles from top genealogists around the country. Every week we feature a new article aimed to help beginning and advanced genealogists alike solve common research problems, break-through brick walls, and learn how to improve their research techniques. It’s a phenomenal, free resource for all and we’d like you to be a part of it!
We compensate our writers for the hours they spend writing on researching and give them a complimentary membership to our website, Archives.com.
What we look for in a writer:
- Author must be a professional or extremely experienced in their field
- Author must have excellent writing skills
- Sign a standard contract and W9 form
Please contact Ayme Alvarez at email@example.com if interested in writing for the Expert Series.
The second announcement comes from Michael John Neill, author of the very popular Casefile Clues newsletter:
Based upon reader surveys, we’re going to start a “beginner” version of Casefile Clues on a trial basis–seeing if there really is enough interest and demand. I am looking for other writers who would be interested in contributing pieces to this version.
Anyone who is interested in writing for a beginning genealogist audience can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll send specifics and additional information when I return from Utah later in the week. I can’t promise high wages at this point, but a tagline and website for each author will be included.
If you are interested in writing genealogical articles, these two new opportunities may be just what you are looking for.
