PBC Guru - Silver Spring, MD

About PBC Guru

Our company, PBC Guru, is a startup that manages virtual book clubs for over 100 companies and university alumni associations. We're seeking freelance writers to develop content emails and discussion questions for our book clubs.

The role will involve reading books related to general nonfiction and novels, as well as books with topics ranging from business and professional development to politics and psychology. Examples of recent book club selections include Bad Blood by John Carreyrou, Less by Andrew Sean Greer, and The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg. As a content writer, you will develop thematic “core” questions related to the book, as well as content emails that correspond to these core questions. We will provide a content guide for you to follow as you compose your content, as well as provide feedback on your writing and schedule intermittent phone calls to review your work.


About the Role

We are looking to establish long-term relationships with our freelancers!

We expect content development to take, on average, 4-6 hours to write, not including the time to read the book. We will provide the books as kindle ebooks.
