US Ghost Adventures Inc. Freelance Ghost Tour Researcher in Nantucket, Massachusetts

We're looking for a skilled writer and researcher to create a haunted history-based ghost tour!

You are writing and designing a ghost tour that will consist of 12 to 14 locations that we will provide you with.

The stories should be written with care to verbal delivery, detailed, use local history, and of course, move the reader through a scary and emotional story. Excellent writing and editing skills are expected for this project.

Stories should start with the history of the location but MUST include the events and hauntings that have been known to take place as a result. Please cite your sources for all materials. You do have some degree of creative license to make the tour more entertaining if you're short on material.

Each story should be approximately 1,200 words each. We will provide an example of what we're looking for. This will be research-heavy, as stories should be based on history and documented accounts, and they must be within a small walking area, but you are free to use creative license to fill in any gaps. A good balance of haunted history, ghost stories, and sightings will be expected.

You will be asked to sign an NDA and contractor agreement before receiving the sample and beginning the project. Must be a native English speaker, based in the US, and a freelancer (no agencies please)

Salary: $150 flat rate
