Do you have a knack for knowing what others will find interesting and shareable? Can you turn ideas into high-quality prose in a matter of minutes, not hours? Are you able to think strategically and come up with creative prose that highlights a brand's core values? Do you ever read BuzzFeed headlines and think you could have done better than that?
