Description

Are you looking for a massive creative opportunity within a growing company—a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity? Are you constantly writing scripts in your head? If so, help us create epic media that makes learning to write fun— and share the Write of Passage brand with people all over the world.

Your role is to translate words into compelling imagery. Listen, it’s way more than that, but that’s the essence. Our company is bursting with personality, and we want you to translate that energy into a radical overhaul of our narrative presence.

Write of Passage is creating the best online writing school in the world. Over 1,000 students worldwide have learned a system for publishing quality ideas, connecting with like-minded people, and elevating their careers through writing on the Internet. Our graduates are using online writing to build audiences, launch businesses, and make an impact—living life on their terms!

Write of Passage is considered the gold standard for community-driven, cohort-based, online courses. And, we’re growing. Our vision is to build a global platform for writing instruction in the 21st century while delivering the best educational experience in the world.

We’re a writing company, so the bar is high. Writing visuals is a unique (and niche!) skill with a different mindset than text. You know how to make information aesthetic and infuse stories with a narrative pulse.

We work within limited recording windows, so our creativity happens in prep and post. You help us develop captivating ideas that we execute swiftly on shoot day and set us up with room for innovation in post-production.


What you will be doing
  • Writing scripts for a variety of purposes (YouTube videos, courses, workshops, ads, reels, podcasts, etc.)
  • Generating first drafts from the title/thumbnail directives of our YouTube Strategy team and bullet points of Product/Marketing
  • Relentlessly filter every line of the script through the question “is this visual?” to ensure we add depth and counter-melody to the voiceover, not just 1:1 representation
  • Come up with wonky approaches to integrating archival/stock footage so that it feels dynamic, playful, and uniquely Write of Passage
What you will NOT be doing
  • Constantly being interrupted by meetings; you'll get in the zone and do deep creative work
  • Sticking to the tools and techniques you've always used; you'll be forever expanding your creative arsenal
  • Being told exactly what to do and when to do it; you'll flex your creative muscle daily
Key Responsibilities
