Writer's Markets

Posted by shirleyanderson on May 30, 2008 at 11:41 AM

I get asked by a lot of people if I know of places where they can sell their writing.  I?m not sure why some of them ask me of all people, but I?m happy to help if I can. 

There are a million of these types of sites, and they are worth your while to check, if not daily, then certainly when you?re having a slow work week and need some new projects.  Expand your circle of searching and you?ll create opportunities for yourself.




These sites are updated daily.



·      Sun Oasis
Check for online jobs regionally, nationally, or globally. Has listings for journalists, freelance writers, mag writers, etc.


·      Online Writing Jobs
Has different categories of listed work - high paying, low paying, no paying. Lists collaboration opportunities, and scams. Sometimes list book & ghostwriting opps. Both jobs & contract work can be found here.


This site is a compilation of sorts. Many of the listings here come from Craigslist, some from Online Writing Jobs, some from the other writing sites out there. The only jobs that appear in the list are for writing, either jobs or assignments.


·       Freelance Portfolios
This is a site that wants you to sign up. It is free, and allows you to not only peruse the markets, but also post a portfolio for clients to read. You can then communicate with clients through the website. Helpful articles too.


·      Net Temps
A free job board for temp & full-time jobs. The day of this posting, there were several ads for technical writers. This site has won awards, including Fortune 10's & Forbes Best of Web. Worth checking out!

That?s all I?m putting in today.   I hope these links help you open a few doors of opportunity.


To see other sites to submit your freelance writing work to, including fiction and screenwriting, go to Places To Sell Your Writing.  Best of luck with your submissions.
