Tim Worstall October 10, 2015 at 10:18 am No, no technical writing experience, not professionally at least. But I’m a very fast learner. Fred October 10, 2015 at 10:41 am Thought of doing something for the EU leave campaign ? Do they pay ? Tim Worstall October 10, 2015 at 10:43 am I doubt they would pay really. Tim Newman October 10, 2015 at 12:20 pm I received an email from a guy looking for tech writers last week. It’s on my work email, I’ll forward it to you on Monday. Sam Jones October 10, 2015 at 1:10 pm Are there no charitable trusts which could give you £65k a year? Do the left have all the fun? Tim Worstall October 10, 2015 at 1:26 pm No and yes. I do have a small proposal in front of me. But it pays at the rate of 5 pence a word. The righties seem to want people to work for their money….. Edward Lud October 10, 2015 at 2:55 pm I clearly haven’t been paying attention. What happened to the old writing jobs? Tim Worstall October 10, 2015 at 3:07 pm One of them is becoming markedly less attractive than it used to be. So, looking around for others. Ted S. October 10, 2015 at 3:07 pm But it pays at the rate of 5 pence a word. This is why it takes people until the sixth shot of their six-shooters to kill the bad guy. Van_Patten October 10, 2015 at 5:31 pm Tim Have you tried Townhall or Breitbart? The former is US based but does employ some European counterparts – latter would snap you up in a heartbeat I’d think! Arthur Dent October 10, 2015 at 8:34 pm You could always ask Professor Murphy for a job 🙂 Fred October 10, 2015 at 11:41 pm Thought. Get yourself a youtube channel and do some vids about capitalism and stuff. There is a lot of education needed especially for the yoof. Tim Worstall October 11, 2015 at 6:13 am The Breitbart letter is already in. Townhall tends not to pay very much……works more on the US model of write columns in order to sell books/get speaking gigs. Ivor October 11, 2015 at 8:03 am BuzzFeed UK is continuing to expand its editorial team with the announcement that Tom Chivers, currently assistant comment editor at The Telegraph, will join the outlet as a senior writer in January. The appointment comes as UK editor Luke Lewis plans to focus on developing the news side of BuzzFeed UK over the next year. “Up until now, we’ve hired general reporters, now we want to build a beat structure,” Lewis told Journalism.co.uk. “We want to hire an LGBT editor, [and] we’re thinking about other beats such as economics, housing.” BuzzFeed has more than doubled its UK audience in the past year, now reporting 20 million unique visitors, up from 8 million at the end of last year, said Lewis. Bloke in Wales October 11, 2015 at 9:27 am Have you tried the Grauniad? They’re always in need of someone that understands either economics, or freedom. Adopting a suitably ethnic-sounding female name would probably do your chances no harm there either. Bloke in Germany October 11, 2015 at 9:44 am Timila Batwomanlesbi Bloke in Germany October 11, 2015 at 9:46 am There seems to be an awful lot of “seven gay celebrities you didn’t know had had cosmetic surgery in 1983” stuff padding out even once-respectable newspaper websites these days. Guess there isn’t much money in that either. Bloke in North Dorset October 11, 2015 at 12:54 pm The Economist are looking for some to write on banking, see this week’s edition. It says London based but I’ve come across that term before and its usually flexible. Might suit Frances more if she was on the lookout.
