I am in need of a ghostwriter for me and my team at a local weekly newspaper and radio stations. Each week we receive many press releases and story ideas that our current team isn't able to address, but wouldn't require an intricate level of knowledge of the community. An example is a summary of the annual report provided by our local utility company, Muscatine Power and Water. Attached is the annual report and my first draft of a story on the report.
Generally, I would be able to provide a topic, some background information and a point of view/approach to the content. I can also reach out to community members for quotes/more information as needed to create a quality, engaging story. I would appreciate if you are someone who can also do some follow up research as needed including possible reaching out to sources via email and phone (we would create a company email address for you to use).
Most of our stories end up in the 400-750 word range plus a couple of pictures. You can see an example of our final newspaper product here: [login to view URL]
Please provide a copy of similar content you have written in your proposal. I'm anticipating 2-5 stories per week on average depending on the events going on and the load on my current staff. I would also ask you to read several pieces I've written to be able to start matching my style and tone.
Experience with Basecamp, AP style writing and strong email/phone communication skills are preferred.
