Default Hiring non-native speakers as writers

Is it possible to be hired as a writer though not being a native speaker? How much will it diminish the chance to be hired?

1. Yes. Anything is possible (except the Star Trek holodeck and time travel to the past). Look at Vladimir Nabokov - he was born in Russia and became a very fine English writer.

2. A lot.

Pretty much what tsloper says. It's going to be tough, but definitely not impossible.
