Writers FAQ

Writing and Research

  • How long would you expect a typical piece of writing to take?

    This depends on a few things:

    • your knowledge of the subject
    • your ability to research
    • your speed as a writer
    • your grasp of Quietly’s tools

    With a firm grasp on the above, our writers generally find the process of writing 300–500 word articles manageable and efficient.

  • What are the hours of commitment required?

    Most of our opportunities can be done in concert with another job. The number of stories needed for a particular client will determine the number of hours required. Because of this, if we think we have a good match for you, we’ll ask you your availability to ensure you’re comfortable with the hours required. Most clients have a minimum of 8 stories per month.

  • How much research is needed?

    This depends on your expertise in the area, and varies among assignments. As with all writing, research and sources are needed to ensure content is factual and correct. Without a good grasp of the topic or research, the content will not likely satisfy our requirements.

Workload

  • What volume of work can I expect?

    Contracts vary in length and number of articles. Depending on your bandwidth, schedule, etc., we’ll determine what client will be the best fit for you to match the workload you’re able to take on. This can range from 8 to 40 stories per month. We occasionally have one-off opportunities as well.

  • Is there work involved beyond the actual research and writing?

    Besides researching and writing, you may be responsible for:

    • creating content within Quietly’s tools, which requires photos, links, etc.
    • adding photos throughout content (no need for layout, but proper photo crediting required)

    Promotion will never be a requirement.

Content Requirements

  • Does the writer have to supply photos for every submission?

    Yes, all of our writing assignments require licence-free photos, whether done in Quietly’s tools or written as a long-form traditional article. On Quietly, you'll notice how easy it is to use rights-free images. There is a feature that lets you browse images at the click of a button and insert one at no cost.
