Level 4 Press, Inc. and Level 4 Films, Inc. are seeking assignment writers for a wide variety of books we are developing in-house.
Our goal is to hire writers on a work-for-hire basis to write novels to our specifications. We will provide a detailed outline of the story, and editorial guidance and support throughout the process. We will also provide independent outside quality assurance reviews of the draft material. Level 4 Press, Inc. will publish the book, and Level 4 Films, Inc. (a division of Level 4 Press) will then work to produce the film adaptation.
Writers must have the discipline and time, in addition to wordsmithing skills, to devote to this endeavor. Novels will be approximately 100,000 words and we are looking for writers willing and able to commit to composing 5,000 words per week to our specifications/outlines, expressing their creativity within the boundaries of the provided guideposts. We will try to match assignments with writers’ preferred genres (e.g., comedy, action/adventure, historical, etc.), but we’ll also offer the opportunity for you to stretch yourself and try something new if that is your desire.
Writers will receive co-author/writer credit for their books and "Based on the book by" credit for any screen adaptations. Writers receive a $5K royalty advance in three installments. Writers will receive 100% of the royalties (they will not be asked to share the royalties). Royalties are calculated as 10% of book net sales. But please note that this is a work-for-hire agreement: Level 4 Press will own the rights to the created material and the only financial compensation will be the initial Payments, as well as the royalties on book sales and the same royalty on the sale of book rights for film and television (see FAQ for more info on royalties on book rights for film and television).
