About.com Looking for Freelance Writers

The giant About.com information site is looking for additional freelance writers for its Contributing Writers program. On the website, they say...

The About.com Contributing Writers program was created to help us cover topics that may not be broad enough for a full GuideSite. Contributing Writers work alongside our Guides, covering specific subtopics that fall within the larger topic areas of our GuideSites. They are responsible for producing a certain amount of content (articles or blog posts) per month on that subtopic. They are not responsible for managing or maintaining a full GuideSite.

We are currently evaluating candidates to write on the following topics:

If you are interested in applying for one of these positions or learning more, you are asked to email your resume and a writing sample - both in the body of an email - to contributingwriters-AT-about.com (change the -AT- to the usual @ symbol). Put the topic you're applying for in the subject line. Aim to be as concise as possible.

Incidentally, About.com are always looking for Subject Guides as well. This is likely to be a bigger, regular commitment, but if you are accepted there is a minimum income guarantee as long as you continue to fulfill the company's requirements. Please see this earlier blog post about being an About.com Subject Guide.
