How can a free lance writer get more interesting work?
There is plenty of poorly paid and often boring content writing work around on the internet... are there any ways of getting involved in more interesting paid writing projects?
I recently found this website:
You have to pay to join, but the opportunities seem to be unique and varied, ranging from poetry to magazine contributions to publishing houses calling for submissions. The list of opportunities is updated once a week. Cost is 8 GBP for 3 months to try it out, or 24 GBP for a year's subscription, payable via PayPal. Jobs seem to be generally UK-oriented, but some are work-from-home and international.
Hope this helps.
Thanks John - that sounds worth a bit of investigation. Much appreciated
I've had a look at this site and it does seem to be legit as well as having a lot of good opportunities. I've joined for 3 months to see what it's like.
Rather than the rhetorical response... Do you have an actual answer to the question I asked?
Hi Linda, many freelance sites have subscriptions and it's often the only way to get better paid work. They're better than the content mills, sure, it costs nothing but you get little back for hard, tedious work that ofen gets stolen by 'clients'!
You have your answer I suppose so just commenting by the way.
I think writing demands a full time job or greater share of part time job at least. That's why this boring and dry stuff on internet; out of busy schedules people just hurrying in and out for pennies. I don't know where this will eventually end.
I have heard of elance.com and other writing websites. There is Textbroker (free to join) and other sites. There are some useful hubs on this topic.
I see freelance opportunities on Craigslist etc... But the pay seems very low to me. It seemed like it was 7 cents per word. You might investigate SEO writing at some of the search engine optimization companies, although they only charge clients $50.00 per article. That might be good money if you are a quick writer. I am rather slow...

What you think is your top strength as a writer?People write and then grow as they write. Some are very organized, some not-so-organized and others write simply on impulse. Some writers are smart in promoting their work...

I guess many of us come up with an idea or ideas by inspiration. What's your inspiration?
