Magazine writing jobs sent straight to your inbox? Yes, it is true. I get them every morning. So how can you get them?
We know that surfing the internet can wipe us out. With millions of articles, and people contributing to this sea of information, how do we fish out what we need? As I began my search, I was overwhelmed by all the sites on freelance writing; I felt like I was drowning. I made the pond smaller by narrowing my search to, “list of freelance writing jobs.” To save you time, I hooked a few valuable sites, along with other resources, that could land you writing jobs.
There are many websites that you can subscribe to that will send writing opportunities directly to your email. Some sites charge a small fee to apply for the job or use the site. Most are free. Here is a very short list to get you started.
Freelancewriting.com– I subscribe to their Morning Coffee enewsletter. It is a great resource for writing jobs. Brian Scott has done all the work for us. His morning newsletter has sections for contests, writing gigs, and a Call for Submission section. From time to time he sends out an email with time- sensitive requests. He lists magazines needing a last- minute article. This e mail comes to you every morning.
Freelancewritinggigs.com– A great place to find writing jobs. Check out the “Resources for Writers” tab while you are there.
Outsoure.com- This website allows you to bid on freelance jobs. The variety of jobs is amazing. Everything from blogs, magazine articles and medical magazines.
Freelancer.com- This is a free monthly trial website. Ultimately you will pay to submit for jobs.
Remember, this is a very short list. For more information you can brave the waters and do your own internet search for writing jobs. Don’t forget to subscribe to each sites job list. Writing jobs can also be found in your local newspaper, online Job sites (i.e. Indeed, Monster, etc.) and also craigslist will post freelancing jobs.
Books- Although these books do not send information directly to your inbox, you can find a list of magazines along with the submission requirements.
2015 Writer’s Market: The Most Trusted Guide to Getting Published- This book is a wealth of information for every writer. There is a section just for magazines.
The Christian Writers Market Guide– Similar to the Writers Market Guide, this book is specific for the Christian writing community. You can only order on line at www.jerryjenkins.com/guide
Let others know that you write. You are your best resource. You have an intimate knowledge of the subject. I attended a local social media class, stated I was a writer and was approached by two people to write for their publication.
No matter where you are in your writing career there will always be more to learn. The number of websites and people looking for writers like you increases daily. Keep learning and growing. Please share your successes and bumps in the road. We are all here to learn from each other.
