LitCharts writers are an exclusive group of excellent writers with a deep understanding of literature and how to teach it to others. LitCharts writers have gone on to become best-selling nonfiction writers, 2017 national book award finalists, New York Times journalists, Harvard literature PhD candidates, and more. Now you can apply to join them!
We’re hiring writers to help expand our collection of nearly 1000 literature and poetry guides. Here are two examples of our guides, one for literature and one for poetry:
Writers can work from anywhere and compensation varies based on the length and difficulty of the work. Pace and schedule are flexible, though our ideal candidates will have at least 10 hours per week to spend writing LitCharts.
Please send a resume as well as two writing samples to the email below. Samples should be academic papers that demonstrate your ability to analyze literature and/or poetry with insight and clarity. Samples should be at least 5 pages long, and can be up to any length (a thesis would be fine, for instance). We will not consider applications that do not include academic papers focused on the analysis literature (as in novels) or poetry.
