Freelance Writers Application

Thank you for your interest in writing for California Green Solutions. People interested in greening their businesses and their communities are finding our website informative and helpful...and at an accelerating pace. Thanks to our current team, we are doubling readership almost monthly.

We currently have a few editorial openings for new writers and if you are interested, we'd like to hear from you.

Our mission is to provide company teams with the information they need to implement practical green solutions in their workplace, their operations and their products. We publish stories that have green resources, tips, and strategies that help companies meet compliance requirements or voluntarily green their impact.

Writer's Application Process

The writers' application process here at California Green Solutions is fairly simple. All we need is:
  • Your contact information (name, address, email, phone)
  • Your areas of business and green focus / what you would like to write about
  • Two independently researched articles (100 to 300 words) that you think match the style and subject matter of California Green Solutions.

Writers Guidelines

  • Always concentrate on California business solutions.
  • Be concise and informative. Include interview quotes when available and when they can be approved by the person interviewed.
  • Provide options for businesses just starting the greening process, and those already involved.
  • Provide company contact information for sourcing. California companies are preferred.
  • Humor is great, solutions come first. People need practical tips, checklists, and contacts.
  • California Green Solutions has an archive of over 400 articles...check that you're not writing something that's already been covered (our search function works pretty well for key words.)
  • Links back to previous content is very helpful for readers and will increase your readership. Keywords are also important in titles and subheads.

Writers Agreement

  • All California Green Solutions writers are required to write at least one feature article per month and if you cannot commit to this, please do not apply.
  • Payment is currently $50 for feature articles (500-800 words)and $10 for short articles (300-500 words). Writers receive bonuses when their posts receive a lot of traffic.
  • Writers are required to keep track of their own stories and schedules and must bill California Green Solutions at the end of every month.
  • Writers are required to sign a writers agreement.
Greening California's diverse business community is timely, and seeing how many people are signing up for our monthly newsletters and visiting our website is really gratifying. They are the value of green information and connections to solutions, and the benefits to them.

Your interest in sharing your knowledge is terrific, and I only wish we had room to take every interested writer on, but we can add only a few writers at this time. So if we aren't able to bring you on at this time, it doesn't mean we don't appreciate your writing sample or your participation -- it only means that we have limited openings at this time. As we grow, we will add additional writers and we hope you will check back with us occasionally for new opportunities.

In the meantime, we hope you will explore green opportunities and continue to help green California! And drop us a note at any time, we love to hear from writers and visionaries who have creative content ideas to propose for the California Green Solutions family of news, information and seminar outreach services.
