OaklandMofo is currently on the lookout for someone original and creative to submit articles, and that someone could be you.
Depending on responses we may accept up to 3 writers.
Based on the current market rates we’re willing to pay up to $20 per article depending on length and creativity.
Pay will be $1 per 100 words up to $20 paid direct via PayPal upon completion of an agreed upon article.
That’s much better than other Oakland local type sites who expect you to write for free under the blanket of “internships”.
All articles submitted must be original content, non-plagiarized and can not be redistributed as we will own the rights and make changes necessary for OaklandMofo.
Please be sure to include your article idea in the email. I would love to hear your ideas. I myself have a few in mind but would like for you to submit original ideas for approval as this is your chance to get your opinion / voice out there with this Oakland grown site.
If you have something of your own that you would like to promote such as an event, small business, website or anything Oakland related, we can work something out but will not be paying you to submit that content. This is considered an advertisement and may require a fee for us to promote. We are currently working on revamping our events section. Contact for advertising rates.
Please contact me with an idea for an article and we can work out the details.
When applying for the position please include a sample of your writing, a little about yourself, why you love Oakland, how long you’ve been in Oakland, where you moved from and anything else you think may put you ahead of the rest of the pack.
For an idea of past articles but not limiting yourself to, check out our articles section.
