How to Find Freelance Writing Jobs

I found this today while I was browsing YouTube. It was created by the folks behind Daily Writing Jobs, and I find it very useful, especially for beginners. The “Write for Us” tip worked for me several years ago. Hope it works for you too!

    Trusting someone who claims to be a writer, yet calls quotation marks ‘parantheses” makes me a little nervous, but I will give it a try.

    As noted in the other comments, the video was very helpful. However, it makes me feel a little bad that after all this time, I hadn’t thought of this step myself. Oops.

    Good thing this guy doesn’t do any actual voice work. However, I did feel that this video was very informative as well as very helpful.

    Great advice. This tip got me thinking about being more proactive and lead to a paid assignment.

    So I’d like to share a tip of my own: Whenever you read an enjoyable article google the author and find out where else they have been published. There a good chance that a publication they have worked for is right up your alley. It worked for me.

    This really is amazing! I tried all of the techniques mentioned in the video and found a legitimate writing job within 15 minutes! I simply wrote to the editor, she wrote back and I now have a paid assignment.
