Writing Jobs, Where and What to Look for!


There is a variety of options in making money online writing. The first is to find an active online group with the same intention, post paying jobs back and forth, rather than paying a membership fee to a site for the same information. Most sites that charge for membership collects paying jobs just like unified groups of writers do.

So form a group and you will share with other people in collecting paying jobs.

Remember you’re worth something and writing an article once or twice for a minimal sum can help make a portfolio for you, but to doing it on an ongoing basis is a bad idea. People don’t go to work for companies and be paid $3.00 for a half day’s work, and neither should a writer be paid that sum.

Craigslist has a lot of paying writer jobs, and the search is wide as far as locations since you freelance from home. Look beyond your location, there are even UK jobs available. If you’re bilingual that opens up even a wider geographical area.

Writing for Hubpages is another way of making money and the plus for that is compared to a freelance job which pays you one lump sum…Hubpages is continuous paying.

If you’re writing skills include fiction or fact, you will find ghostwriting jobs which can be very lucrative, but be sure you have a contract.

Pull out all the stops:

Place your own ad and include the word count and price you want for your work, there are many sites to do this and some are listed below:

1. Craigslist

2. Local Job Search Sites

3. Newspapers & Pennysavers

4. http://www.writer’sWeekly.com

5. Your own email group of writer job exchanges

6. http://www.worldwidefreelance.com/

7. http://www.freelancewriting.com/

8. http://www.freelancewritinggigs.com/

9. http://www.writergazette.com/fun-kidz

12. http://write-jobs.blogspot.com/

13. http://www.pw.org/classifieds

14. http://www.janerotrosen.com/

The list above are only some suggestions, but there are a lot of jobs out there if you look online.

Be careful of scams, like everything else be alert if something just doesn’t sound right.

On an end note you should never have to pay a fee to write for someone, or enter a contest.

Great hub, B. A.! Will be reading much more of your stuff. I am currently editing my first finished novel, "Bones of My Brother", and have several short stories posted here on HubPages. Looking forward to reading your fiction. I voted this piece of yours up, interesting, useful and awesome. Keep up the good work.

Great hub! I like the idea of writing groups. It makes sense, but I did not even think about that before. Thanks for the information.

There is a very active group Payingwriterjobs @ yahoogroups.com. There is no discussion of what or how you write we just exchange writing jobs that pay. Criteria I believe is send one a month, and there are plenty online to send off.

    Sign in or sign up and post using a HubPages Network account.
