Writer For Hire (and free)

Morgen Bailey is a freelance writer available for a variety of writing-related projects:

Her writing-related articles have been published in the NAWG ‘Link’ magazine (April 2011, August 2011 and October 2011 issues) and she has guest blogged on Tia Silver Bach’sJodine Turner’sJD Mader’sChaz Wood’s, and Fiona Veich Smith’s websites.

If you would like her to write for your blog or website she will be more than willing: free for non-exclusive content (list to follow) or for £20 / €25 / US$30 / AS$30 for exclusive content on a subject of your choice.

Morgen’s strength is writing short stories so if you’re compiling an anthology (or suchlike) and like her writing then she would gladly discuss writing something especially for you. To-date her stories have been published in Woman’s Weekly, NAWG ‘Link’ magazine (April 2012) and on Neal James’ and Nathan Weaver’s websites. She also has a quirky short story ‘First Impression’ in the Writers for Welfare anthology Telling Tales, published by Moonworks Publishing, March 2012.

Blogs have become a key asset for a writer and Morgen is now able to offer this service. She recommends WordPress and for £50 (€60 / US$75 / CAN & AS$80) she will create your blog* (providing the http://____.wordpress.com name is available) for you to then do with as you wish. Alternatively, for a reasonable hourly fee (£15 (€18 / US$22.50 / CAN$ & AS$25)) for any works undertaken, she can maintain it with the content of your choosing using your photographs (or photographs you have permission to use) to promote your writing, books and other writing-related products. This is ideal for anyone uncomfortable with technology but most importantly frees up your time to do what you really love… to write.

* This WordPress blog has been compiled using entirely free options and your blog would be based on this format (though its design will be to your specification, the price quoted is for up to five menu headings), this ensures costs are kept to a minimum. You are therefore only paying for her time… something we often value the most! Her blog regularly attracts over 200 visitors per day (on a ratio of US2:UK1 plus many other countries worldwide) with 474 visits on her busiest day to-date (24th March 2012). She posts 2-3 times per day with a variety of content and many visits are due to keyword searches due to that high level of content, to-date over 1,000 postings and over 70,000 visits since inception on 31st March 2011.

Manuscripts are welcomed for Editing & Critique.

Morgen also transcribes manuscripts from audio files or handwritten formats (rate by agreement but based on the hourly rate).

Based in Northampton, England, Morgen is available as a speaker, workshop organiser etc. Prices start from £50 plus travel expenses, plus accommodation expenses where appropriate.

Although she is unable to undertake book reviews she does review short stories and writing guides, see Book & Story Reviews. There is a list here for some reviewers who do.

Morgen’s email is morgen@morgenbailey.com and she looks forward to hearing from you about any service she may be able to provide you with… or she’s happy to talk about anything writing-related. Like this blog, it’s what’s consumed her.

    Yes I’m going … and can’t wait either. Are you pitching at all? I’ve booked myself into two slots … a ten minute face time plus a 3 minute pitch for two different projects. I got a bit caught up with over-planning the women’s novel so put it away for a while and was really fed up with the whole writing process. Then, stemming from a jokey conversation with DD2, I started a new young teen novel which I’m really enjoying writing … I’m pitching that one in the 3 minute slot to see whether it’s an idea that’s worthwhile continuing with, although I’ve got to finish it either way as DD1 is desperate to know what’s going to happen next!! Will be great to see you at GW2012. Sxx

    Not pitching as I’m sticking with the eBook route for now, although I would again for the experience – it was hilarious!

    DD1’s keenness says that your writing is that good, and they can be a tough crowd. :)

    I’m quite looking forward to it this year .. the first year I was literally petrified, last year was better though still found it a bit nerve wracking, though probably due to who I was pitching to. I feel much better prepared this year … doesn’t mean I won’t probably stammer or spit all over him though:)
    Hope you had a good time at your reunion … Mum’s loft is now sorted and I’ve come home with a bag containing my 18th and 21st birthday cards .. they’re so dated!

    Jackie’s pitching too and I said I treated it like a job interview – I had nothing to lose. :)

    I’m seeing double again! First it was finding out there was another Alison Bruce writing mystery novels (Cambridge Blue, The Silence). That Alison, btw wrote a blurb for Deadly Legacy. She’s such a sweet heart I can almost forgive her for being the skinnier Alison Bruce.

    Now “Writer for Hire”! I’ve been using “alison bruce… writer for hire” that for my business since 1992. I started using it for the same reason my blog title is a play on “Have Gat Will Travel.”

    Well, obviously great minds think alike. Either that, or I need to get my eyes checked. ;)

      I hate to tell you this but I think someone else might have used ‘Writer for Hire’ before us. :)

      I look forward to having you back, guest blogging for me on 12th July. :)
