Subject: Writing position with SR Education
Hi Sherry,
My name is Tara Spicer, and I work for SR Education Group. We placed a Craigslist ad several months ago for a freelance writing position, and we currently have more openings. We were wondering if you were still interested in this position.
Currently, we’re looking for writers to help with a variety of articles for our sites. We have created an online system for writers that allows you to sign in, see all of the available assignments, choose an assignment, and submit it. As soon as you submit your assignment, you will be able to grab another one.
What we expect from our writers above all is quality writing and great work ethic. We expect you to be grabbing assignments each week and putting in a minimum of 15 hours of writing. Articles generally range from 400-750 words, and our pay rate breaks down as follows:
  • 400-450 words: $10
  • 500-550 words: $12.50
  • 600-650 words: $15
  • 700-750 words: $17.50
If this sounds like a good fit for you, please complete the writing test below and return it within two days. Please note that this is not a paid assignment; this is merely our way of assessing your voice as a writer. Also, due to a high volume of applicants, please allow two weeks for us to contact you.
Happy Writing!
Tara Spicer

Write a 500-550 word post that lists five tips for staying motivated when working from home. You’re writing for freelancers who are experiencing burnout and a lack of motivation. Be specific in the tips you offer, and inject some voice/personality into your piece. This doesn’t mean adding lots of exclamation points; rather writing in a tone that is witty and conversational.
