Hiqh Quality Gourmet Food Writer Needed for 10 Articles

    I know that this is not where you are supposed to post for writing jobs but I have noticed that the quality of writers that participate here is much higher than the services section. I'm looking for a gourmet food writer that has experience in writing on gourmet cheese or wine. I have 10 articles that I need for a new cheese site that is launching very soon. If interested, please pm me some samples of writing, rates and expected turnaround. Thanks

    Is that supposed to be a joke?

    If you want to find the better writers, you'll just have to be upfront with how much you can afford in the BST section.

    Sure, you'll attract poor writers too, but I personally wouldn't reply to someone's request for content if they don't know how much they can spend.

    No its not a joke. There are many ways writers can price their services that are totally independent of what I'm willing pay. Your rate can be a function of what your time is worth based on the opportunity cost of doing something else. Many writers have a fixed cost per word.

    In the end, I will make a judgement of what that writer is worth based on the perceived quality of their samples. If the writer is not willing to invest a minute to provide a rate and sample, that is their choice.

    Although I'm not a gourmet food writer, I am a writer on Elance. You will find many writers there that have experience in specialty food writing.

    Thanks for the advice. I think Elance may be a better channel for me to find this type of writer.

    Hi,

    I am a blogger with extensive gourmet food experience. I took an associates degree culinary course. I've worked at four star restaurants in the central NJ area for years. I've managed a gourmet cheese department in a retail grocery store. I've worked in a few fine wine shops.

    I know cheese extremely well, I'm intermediate with wine. I have a Food, Drink and Recipes category on my personal blog that you should check out to get a few examples of my food writing abilities. http://www.pinkeyedjim.com/category/food-drink-and-recipes/

    My rate is usually 1.5 cents per word, but for a bulk order like this, I'd be willing to go down to 1 cent per word.
