    You should start with reading their work and go from there.

    1. Ask to see some samples of their previously sold work. (Their portfolio)
    2. Ask for references.
    3. Ask for their resume (background and length of experience)
    4. Ask for a quote for your project.

    Just ask him/her to write a sample article on related niche. Then you decide. If the member is older then can be trusted. I think it works that way.

    If the writer has experience, there's no reason to ask for a sample article. The prospective client should be able to judge the writer's style and skill from previously sold articles within the writer's portfolio. Pro writers don't work for free --- not even in delivering "samples".

    Generally a quote discloses the rates. However, not a bad suggestion because if the rates are too high, the quote will be as well and you will save both your time that the writer's time in finding that out right away.
