WriterAccess offers a wide variety of order styles to our customers, to give them choices and to open the field for our writers as well. The key to understanding our order process is learning the terminology.
Casting Call - This is a general call from a customer to find new writers. The goal for the customer is to find one special writer or a group of writers to use for future projects.
For writers, the casting call is a peek under the hood of a job. It gives you the opportunity to assess the word count, time commitment, and pay to see if it fits your requirements. If you see a job that you want, simply click the “Apply” button and write a brief note showing the customer why you’re the right person for the job. If you’re chosen for a casting call you will receive notice.
Solos – Customers can choose one writer based on a profile or casting call. If you get a solo order, it means the customer has selected only you and no other writer has the option to take that assignment.
If you can’t take a solo order, click on the view button and select “Not Interested” from the options at the top of the page. There is no penalty for turning down solo orders, but we do ask that you let the customer know as soon as possible so they can pick another writer.
Love Lists – Love lists allow our customers to create their own pool of writers from the WriterAccess community. When you are on a love list, you get an email 10 minutes before the job posts. This gives you time to open the order page and be ready when the title appears. With a Love List order, you are not the only writer who may try to claim that job, so it can be competitive.
Love List orders are open to you regardless of your star rating. If the job is posted at five stars and you are a four-star writer, you will still be able to accept that order.
Crowd – Crowd orders are available to anyone with the designated star rating or higher. Writers with a 3-star rating will see orders posted anywhere from 2 to 3 stars. A 3-star writer will not see a 4-star crowd order, though. These orders go to whomever claims them first. To claim one, simply click “view” beside the order title then “Checkout.”
