Forty Fourth Publishing is looking for 100 freelance writers for the launch of their new national arts and entertainment review website in 2011.

Rates of pay are: £200 for 800-word reviews and £100 for 500 word reviews. All work can be done online. Send at least one review or professional standard article you have written, minimum 500 words in length.
