Are you an experienced writer with a background in literary analysis? A current or former teacher of English literature? Or an advanced degree holder in a literature-related field? If so, then this is the perfect freelance writing opportunity for you.

SuperSummary is a provider of academic study guides that help students understand and analyze the books that they are reading in class. This year, we are looking to expand rapidly by hiring a group of talented writers to create new study guides for a list of modern and classic books.

The details:
• Our study guides have a length of approximately 10,000-12,000 words
• Standard sections include chapter summaries and analyses, as well as discussion of major and minor characters, themes, symbols and motifs, important quotations, and possible essay topics
• We offer competitive compensation and typically expect our writers to be able to complete one study guide roughly every 3 weeks

Ideal qualifications:
• Education: BA/BS in English, English Literature, Comparative Literature, Creative Writing, or a related field; Masters or PhD strongly preferred.
• Teaching experience in English/English literature is a huge plus (although not required)
• Extensive previous experience with literary analysis and academic writing/editing is a must

TO APPLY: If you feel you're qualified and like what you've read thus far, we encourage you to fill out our brief application and answer a few quick questions here.

Ultimately, we are looking for writers who are interested in a long-term relationship with us that would involve working on roughly one-dozen study guides per year. If this project sounds like a good match for your skills and interests, we hope to hear from you soon.
