MindKEY.me, a comprehensive wellness resource, is seeking strong writers interested in honing their craft and improving their understanding of SEO (search engine optimization). Those interested in pursuing or advancing a freelance career in writing or communications will benefit from working with our editorial staff and our extensive network of professionals, as will any business owner seeking more exposure/sales for their brand.
We strive for well-written, journalistic-style stories that include at least one primary source and are suitable for publication in a newspaper or print magazine. Stories should be around 500-1000 words, include sources and be written in a conversational manner.
Writers will be asked to take assignments, and pitch stories in areas of personal interest and expertise. For assigned stories, some or all of the necessary research may be provided. Regular writers may be offered columnist positions in their field of interest in which they can utilize their personal expertise and have more control over content.
Writers are given access to our editorial calendar including information on our upcoming themes, and instructions creating a one-paragraph pitches, deadline information, and details on sources. We offer quite a bit of flexibility within the broad themes of wellness, happiness, sustainability and success.
Mind Key accepts all motivated writers and business professionals, at any level. Compensation is in alignment with industry standards and is granted on a sliding scale based on experience, quality, and number of articles published with us or our affiliates. Starting rates range between $15-$50 per article, and will be determined upon the acceptance of your first article.
Mind Key helps you build your exposure with links to your brand. You are encouraged to re-run stories written for Mind Key for publication on your own blog or website. Through working with Mind Key, you will build a solid repertoire of published clips in your chosen field, and the knowledge and expertise needed to garner paying work with the most discerning publications–including Mind Key clientele.
Since this is a freelance opportunity, you are never required to accept assignments, and may work as often or as little as you like. However, talented writers with good work ethics may be offered a regular columnist position if they desire.
All writers are offered discounted admission to the Mind Key online writing course valued at over $500. Because we focus on copy that matches today’s online reader, search engine algorithms, and align with other reputable media outlet formats, even professional writers who complete the course find the process of effective article-creation much easier, and invariably receive higher pay rates right out of the gate, both with Mind Key and other publications. In addition to recorded modules, you will receive one-on-one support and feedback on your article from a seasoned journalist and editor.
