Thailand: Worldwide Writers, trade your skills for free accommodation in 2019 at Content Castle

Writers, want to spend one to three months in Thailand rent-free?

As a resident at The Content Castle, you’ll get your own private room, and two meals a day, as well as access to all our facilities, writing workshops, and one-on-one tuition.

In exchange, we ask you to write 7,500 words per week of work that will be assigned to you (not your own projects, those are separate). You’ll get real-world experience writing for clients large and small around the globe, and make great connections with like-minded writers.

Location: Koh Samui, Koh Samui District, Surat Thani, Thailand

When: Now, through 2019

Qualifications: All we need to see is some writing talent in your application, and ideally a significant lack of “crazy.”

Fees: There is a non-refundable $200 USD deposit that covers some of your supplies while you’re with us. Otherwise, there is no other money involved. Your 7,500 words per week is your “rent.”
