Are you a qualified writer?

People regularly contact the QWF asking how to find someone to help them with their writing projects, whether as a mentor, an editor, or a ghost writer. We created the Hire-a-Writer directory so we could refer them to a bank of writers we had vetted for those purposes. Most of the writers on the site get multiple contracts per year in return for their $25 annual fee.

If you are a professional writer of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, journalism, or young adult/children’s literature; an academic or corporate writer; or a screenwriter or playwright, you can apply to be included in the QWF’s online “Hire-a-Writer” Directory, a platform for writers with professional credentials to post their profiles as writers, writing coaches, editors, etc.

For full eligibility criteria and application instructions, see http://www.hireawriter.ca/apply/. Selected writers must be members of QWF before being listed in the directory (you can join upon acceptance) and will be asked to pay a $25 annual fee to cover QWF’s administration costs.
