I confess. I’m a foodie, but in the sense that I like to eat, not so much in the hands on/ preparation department that calls for culinary skills in the kitchen. And what I know about the sinking of The Titantic could fill exactly one page of a very thin notebook. But, this position is meant for some lucky writer out there and it might just be you. Here are the details…
Seeking the perfect candidate to complete a 10 to 15 minute performance writing piece about the last dinner aboard the R.M.S. Titanic ship. This piece should be colorful, engaging and have a descriptive tone with humorous and heartfelt elements. All should be written from the perspective of first-class passenger Molly “Unsinkable” Brown.
The ideal candidate will be able to create a piece that is entertaining and food-focused, yet conveys Brown’s character and her personal accounts of the extravagant cuisine, including the last dinner before the infamous tragedy.
Qualified candidates, please email at least two original creative (published or unpublished) writing samples that capture the above characteristics to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please include your name, contact information and desired compensation. This is a work-for-hire position with all rights to the final piece retained by the company.
