Do you want to write about Movies, TV, Arts, Anime, Comics, Games,
Literature or other art forms? Do you want to get your foot in the door
and enter the big-wide world of the online media and have your work read
and shared by millions of readers? We invite you to The Artifice:

The Artifice is an online magazine that covers a wide spectrum of art

built and maintained by your fellow writers. It is structured to let you
focus on the quality of the content while it deals with the exposure of it
to an audience of millions.

The Artifice does not work quite the same as other publishing platforms.
For example, the first question you may ask is "What are you looking for?"
At The Artifice, your fellow writers ask you instead: "What are you an
expert on? What are you passionate about?"

You can write about a whole host of things for pleasure, passion and/or to

Business and Science Writers Incorporated (BSW), which provides technical-writing services to leading companies in Minnesota's growing high-tech sector, has a great opportunity for an about-to-graduate or recent graduate of the scientific and technical communication program at the University of Minnesota (or other well-respected technical-writing program).

Our client is a rapidly expanding start-up company that sells leading-edge analytical equipment to universities, research institutes, and Fortune 500 companies around the world, allowing them to turn extracted deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) into specific gene sequences in a matter of hours. Your function, as a BSW employee working on-site with our client, is to take charge of the writing portion of the grant-application process. The client's Director of Scientific Operations is responsible for locating suitable granting agencies, so no previous grant-writing experience is required, but you must have the following skills and capabilities.

You must have excellent writing skills, which an essential requirement for the job.

You must have your own vehicle and be willing to travel out of town almost every week. This, too, is an essential requirement for the job.

You must be able to meet agreed project deadlines.

You must have good interviewing skills, so you can draw the needed information out of subject-matter experts in various disciplines. A science background would be helpful but is not required, as BSW's president, Dr. David Gardner, will help you understand the client's engineers and scientists.

Ability to multi-task and work well in a dynamic, team-oriented environment where priorities sometimes change.

In the first instance you would be an employee of BSW, but after you have proven yourself to the client, you have the option of becoming a full-time employee of the client company. As a result, this trial-for-hire position is a great opportunity for a recent graduate who wants to "get in on the ground floor" with a growing company in the genetic engineering field.

If you are interested in this position, please contact Dr. David Gardner, president of Business and Science Writers, who looks forward to hearing from you. Initial phone enquiries are welcome, or you can email a resume, letter of interest, and any other information you consider relevant (such as brief writing samples) to
