My version of a writing test is called a temp-to-perm contract. Because how the candidate handles project management, research and getting input and review buy-in is at least is important, if not more so, than how well he or she rewrites something while a clock is counting down 30 minutes. This method also has the advantage of not wasting anyone's time until you have narrowed your selection down to your #1 candidate.
