Talk about a flexible writing gig.

Cody, Inc. is searching for a remote contract writer for its yoga blog. It’s a one-year contractual position that’s remote, but you’ll have regular contact with their Seattle-based marketing team, including a check-in every three months.

In this write-from-om position, you’ll be expected to contribute two plans (aka workouts) per month as well as 12 blog posts, all written in the voice of the company. A yoga or fitness accreditation and WordPress experience are preferable for this position.

I’ve reached out to the company about pay and will update the post when I hear back.

To apply, send Cody your resume, cover letter and one to three samples of your writing. If they think you could be a good fit, Cody will ask you to write two short assignments: one creative writing and one technical writing to check out your research skills and ability to follow a style guide.
