Unique Children's Book Publisher Seeks Writers, Illustrators
Who We're Looking For
Are you a writer or illustrator? StoryTime Me wants to help you make a living doing what you love, and is committed to paying fairly for timely, high-quality work. Limited prior experience? We understand that it's tough to make a living from your art, and we're more interested in what you can do than what you've been paid to do in the past. This work is perfect for individuals with prior writing and illustration experience, students, and hobby writers and visual artists who would like to be a part of something meaningful and fun while getting paid.
About StoryTime Me
StoryTime Me helps individuals, couples, and families share their life stories and personal wisdom through co-created, illustrated children's books. StoryTime Me represents the belief that it's possible to use our artistic skills and talents to make the world a more beautiful, kinder place. We're growing and we're looking for creative writers and illustrators to come create with us.
How We Work
We do not employ writers and illustrators; rather, you would work as a remote, on-call independent contractor. As work comes in, it is assigned to individuals in our roster of contract writers and illustrators. You tell us if you can accept a particular project based on our delivery timeline and individual project specs. A project manager will liaise with you and clients whose stories you're illustrating to ensure a positive co-creation experience. Oh, and did we mention that you get to work remotely?
Compensation is on a per-project basis. It is always established at the outset of a project, based on expected book length and completion timeline. A big portion of the costs paid to us by our clients goes to paying writers and illustrators, because we all play equally important parts in bringing individuals' stories to life.
How to Apply
Download, complete, and return an application (available for download at [login to view URL]), along with three samples of your work (paid or unpaid), to firstname.lastname@example.org. If we like what we see, we'll reach out to ask you to complete a test, which will involve writing or illustrating part of StoryTime Me's story, depending on the type of work for which you're applying. If you can adequately tell or illustrate our story, we'll trust you to be good stewards of our clients' stories as well.
StoryTime Me represents the belief that it's possible to use our artistic skills and talents to make the world a more beautiful, kinder place. Together, we can make it happen. So, come play with us in peace, love, unity, and respect!
