oh there's BJ from how expert we also have a how expert publishes nonfiction how-to guides from all topics from A to Z but at this same time we have a fiction brand it's called short story press so if you want to go check out short stories written by everyday people go check out short story press calm having said that I wanted to document the journey behind the scenes war short story press as well hiring fiction writers so I posted a job on up work which is where we find our writers primarily and I'm gonna go review the applicants we have about 12 applicants and to be quite frank we appreciate everybody who applies but we just cannot hire everybody we tend to hire people who have long detailed answers to the cover letters as opposed to people who write one or two sentence answers okay because we're looking for people who are really passionate about their story one example here is Michael okay he has a pretty long detailed cover letter answer title I will have to say his Rangers bride okay let's call it that right now I already took a look at this already so for Speed purposes I'm gonna go through it really quickly so I'm gonna take a look at this um hold on two seconds okay I shortlisted it okay my concept is a Christian themed fantasy about arranger prince who who woos a tavern wench and frees her people Wow interesting it is meant to model how Christ is the bridegroom for the church but through a lens of us Celtic fantasy the plot is as follows see most people will write if you're a writer looking to write for how expert or short story press or any of our publishing brands we even have a Christian themed publishing brand called Christian story press we're looking for passion we're looking for someone who has not just gives one or two sentences because I know freelancers are usually busy so they want to apply as many as possible many jobs as possible but someone like Michael here we've got who has a whole story in his mind I talked to enough writers they in have this vision in their mind and they need to get it out of their system right didn't mean to they need to write it so I could tell this guy this person is tremely passionate okay not everyone is super passionate about you know one or two sentences no no disrespect to anybody who applied but most people are you know tend to write shorter answers I tend to look at hire people who have longer answers okay someone who has longer answers that's why there is thumbs-up shortlisted today I'm gonna hire Michael okay and this is the process and I'm going to take a look at it when such as Venice is much more forceful inspiration lines so he has a whole story inside of and I trust the writers I don't tell them what to do I give them flexibility and the freedom to write their own story that's in their own art in their own mind okay so all I'm looking for is passion okay and I could tell person's passion about the story by the length of the cover letter hands to how detailed it is how interesting it is how unique it is how detailed that's why I say the more unique interesting and a little detail the better the chances of getting picked we hire for how expert we hire 10 to 15% of the people will apply okay because we're looking for people who have passion I'm not saying that other people don't have passion but the ones who have more passion we aren't leaning towards okay so this is a good example if you want to write for how expert short story press or Christian story person or any other projects out there be detailed in your cover letter answers and you'll have a better chance getting hired as a freelance writer okay so I'm gonna go with this I'm gonna click hire freelancer and I'm gonna write down short story press writer and the suggested title will give them the freedom and we like to have the title and subtitle usually usually the title and a subtitle to kind of we like to have a title where a person can read the title and the subtitle and instantly kind of understand what the story is gonna be about okay we like to get to the point so you know instead about having a very vague title like you know you know the quests you know we want something more I mean we want something more logical keyword friendly what are your audience it's a Celtic fantasy right so maybe Celtic can be in the subtitle now the vague title the title can be vague but the subtitle we want it to be logical relevant and contain the main keywords that your type of audience would search for okay so um is mental model how Christ is a bridegroom the church but through a lens of Celtic fantasy range is bride Christian themed fantasy fantasy through the lens okay let me just say it and by the way it's not a final title at the end of the writing once the writers finish we work together to find out and finalize him pick what's the best title that fits the topic okay but um it is meant to model how Christ is the bridegroom of the church Christ as a bridegroom of the church but through the lens of a Celtic fantasy right sure they use three fantasy Christian theme fantasy guilty Hey I'll just bet Christ is the bridegroom let me just write write this down exactly
