  • 1 + year(s) experience with the WordPress publishing platform and Associated Press (AP) writing style conventions
  • Strong understanding of what makes for good Web content and an understanding of how to create it with consistency
  • Solid understanding of SEO and how it relates to web writing

What You'll Get from Wide Open Roads:

  • Guaranteed pay per published article during pre-launch process and potential to earn full contributor role with some hard work
  • Chance to establish / grow a writing career with a growing community and make a major impact on a site with huge goals
