If you can write, we should talk
Ian Lurie Mar 21 2011
So, I’m greedy.
I’ve got this amazing team at Portent, right? They produce all sorts of great training content, link bait, funny lists, news, etc. that we post for clients and for our own bizarre sites.
But I want more, dammit.
We keep a list of headlines, topics and stuff that we want to write about. Topics range from bikinis to cloud computing to SEO.
I want to start hand-picking really good writers to help us write some of this stuff. We’re going to start sending out the headline list to those hand-picked writers.
Note: If your idea of ‘great writing’ is ‘100 words on eHow’, please don’t apply.
