There isn’t any! Well, not monetarily, anyways. We ask our residents to write 10,000 words per week – this could be on a variety of topics, from travel and hospitality, lifestyle and tech, business and more. You’ll get real-world writing experience to help build up your portfolio, as well as feedback on your work to help you grow as an author.

At The Content Castle, you get out as much as you put in.
