Looking for a creative writer to ghost a 3,000+/- essay around the concept "too big to fail." The term that became synonymous with the 2008 financial crisis applies more broadly in a political and social context as Goliaths, like Amazon and Facebook, have become too big to defeat, and lobbyists, such as those preventing climate protections, are too powerful to overcome.

We will provide a general outline for the essay, including the goals for the piece, but want to work with a writer who can add their perspective and insights, as well. Having experience as a journalist who has written about business and social/cultural issues a plus. 

This will be an essay in its most traditional form. A work of creative writing that can not only inform, but persuade the reader, poetically offering reasoned and coherent arguments. As Irish writer Brian Dillon describes it, the essay "is a form that should instruct, seduce, and mystify in equal measure."

This will be the first in a series of essasyists we are looking to contract over the next 12 months.

There are no location requirements for this project.
