I am a writer getting ready to start on a new project and I could use some help doing the heavy lifting with research. Research would focus on criminal activity and organized crime in America, particularly within the prison systems and in the American Southwest and Texas. Looking for someone capable of going far beyond a web search and talking with law enforcement officials, reading government reports and other sources and then distilling the information into a readable form. I'm not looking for dry statistics, but the type of information that forms the exciting backdrop to a narrative.

Skills needed:
Creative research skills
Clear writing ability
Eye for telling detail
Knowledge of Texas, the Southwest a plus but not needed.

payscale: $20 per hour
job type: contract
