Health Writers: Freelance Editorial Opportunity
Helen Buttery, Marketing Director for Al Sears, MD, is looking to add to her freelance editorial team with writers who understand how to write persuasively.
From Helen: Please go to our website at www.alsearsmd.com. Look at past articles.
Pick one topic to write on – make sure the article focuses on one big idea.
Length: 600-800 words
If selected, the payment for the article is $125.00
At the top of the submission, please include the following:
Flesch-Kincaid Score: (should be under 8.0)
2 Subject line suggestions.
The article should have:
- A contrarian stance
- Conversational tone in Dr. Sears’ voice
- A benefit to the reader right up front
- Simple advice that the reader can put to use right away
- A narrow focus – don’t get sidetracked – cover one aspect
Our editorial is divided into three parts:
Lead: promise and benefit, unique contrarian view
Body: proof, credibility and evidence
Advice: easy to follow steps the reader can take right away
Don’t make your editorial journalistic or informational. Make the writing more personal. It should have opinion and emotion. A warm intimate connection between doctor and reader.
All evidence should be related in a way that is reader friendly, not scientific, boring or academic.
