This position is located at our North Mankato, Minnesota headquarters. Hours for this position are flexible. We can work with evening, weekend, part-time and full-time availabilities!

We want copy that’s fluid and entertaining to read, authoritative, personality-driven, and perhaps most of all, FUN, so we only want writers who are willing to infuse their own enthusiasm into their writing.

 

Since you’ll be getting paid for your words, you’d better be good at using them! This means a solid knowledge of grammar and the English language, but that’s not the only thing we’re looking for in a writer. We want people who know and love the kind of products they’re writing about, so you should come armed with an intuitive knowledge base of pop culture, nerd culture or sports.

  • Be able to work out of our North Mankato Office

Requirements and Skill Sets
  • Moderate Microsoft Office and Excel Proficiency
  • Use of the Internet. But since you’re reading this on the Internet, this point is probably redundant
  • Superlative command of written English. Paint us a word picture with your cover letter. Or submit it in limerick form. On second thought: definitely submit your cover letter in limerick form
  • Attention to detail – Grammar, spelling, proper knowledge of Star Wars characters and weapons, etc. are all important
  • Ability to work independently
  • Charismatic writing ability
  • Really not kidding about that limerick thing
Preferred Skills
  • B.S./B.A. in English, Creative Writing, Marketing, Communications, or other writing-intensive discipline
