You know your latest project is going to turn out amazing—if you find the right writer.
It's tough to find a good freelance writer for your business. As an editor or a small business owner, life moves fast.
When you need to hire a writer to tell the story of how you help your patients, or a feature piece on a big topic in medicine everyone's talking about, it's something that requires a really specific skillset.
You've tried to hire writers before, and didn't exactly get the best results. You know there are good ones out there. But one of these things has probably happened to you before when hiring medical writers:
- You posted about your project to a job board and got overwhelmed with messages from applicants who can get you 1,000 words for $50 (and you still have no idea whether they are qualified to handle the project or not)
- You brought someone on you thought was going to get the job done—only for them to stumble at some point in the process (because they didn't begin with the end in mind)
- You've hired a writer who fundamentally misunderstood what your project was about, and now it's too late to fix the problem (since they didn't ask the right questions at the outset)
- You've hired a medical professional who understands the material but hasn't learned to tell a compelling story (because they don't teach you how to be a writer in medical school)
- You've hired a writer who can tell a good story but doesn't know a tibia from a tumor (because many writers are generalists who don't specialize in health)
An ideal fit for your project would be someone who understands the medicine and is also a great communicator. But how can you find someone like that?
