Want to be paid to blog about books?

Posted April 5, 2013 by

Momentum is the digital-only imprint of Pan Macmillan Australia. Established in February 2012, we publish high quality ebooks globally. Our website and blog is the hub of our operation, and we’d like to include as many diverse voices as possible. Our blog currently hosts opinions from Momentum employees, authors and other contributors, and now we’d like you to have the chance to have your say about the world of books, writing and reading on the Momentum blog.

We are looking for someone who is interested in books, specifically with an interest in genre fiction (predominantly romance and science fiction/fantasy).

What we want from you:

– 4-8 blog posts a month, with a minimum word count of 300 words each

– The posts can cover any topic that you think is relevant to reading, writing, book and storytelling culture and can be in the form of reviews, interviews, author profiles, recaps, catch-ups, re-reads and reader polls – creativity and audience engagement is the main aim

– Preference will be given to a blogger with a relevant social media presence (Twitter, Facebook, etc)

– Genre bloggers step to the front of the line. If you love romance, science fiction, fantasy and thrillers show us your passion for your genre(s)

What we are offering in return:

– An audience of readers and writers

– $20 per post (minimum of 4 and maximum of 8 posts per month)

– free Momentum ebooks

To apply, send a sample blog post, covering letter and brief resume to info@momentumbooks.com.au by April 25th 2013 with the subject line ‘Momentum Blogger’ and be sure to include your name, city, country of residence and occupation. We welcome applicants from all over the world, but the posts must be in English.

Your sample blog post should be the type of thing you’d be posting on a regular basis (not a hokey introductory post). And of course, if we select you as our resident blogger then you will be compensated accordingly if you decide to use your sample blog post as your first post.

If you have any questions, feel free to email or ask in the comments below.

Terms & Conditions

    Could you kindly remove my button from your post? I don’t believe permission was sought in doing so. Thanks,

    With regards to the job opportunity, should the sample blog post be sent using a word document or can you send links to posts that have already been published to offer examples of work? Or, a screen shot of a post? Sorry for all the questions. I’m not really that stupid honest. I just want this job! lol.

      Hi Jonty, either a link or a word doc is fine. Preferably not a screen cap.
