Ten Things About Writing Jobs

1. AbsoluteWrite.com's writers wanted forum for Paying Markets.

2. The Federal government is looking for writers and editors.

3. Freelance Writing.com's Morning Coffee posts a variety of new job listings for writers.

4. Indeed.com's Ghost Writer jobs page.

5. JobSearchSite.com has 99 freelance writer jobs presently listed here, and you can register with them and post your resume for free.

6. Ralan.com keeps an updated market list for SF writers here.

7. Sunoasis Jobs has a bunch of writer job listings, as well as links to writing jobs on the internet.

8. Some interesting technical writing jobs are listed over at Techwriters.com.

9. Applying for a writing job but have no resume or C.V.? The University of California, Irvine offers a breakdown on how to write them page (examples on the left sidebar are in .pdf format.)

10. WritersWrite.com has a jobs for writers section.

Before I became an author, I worked a variety of freelance writing jobs. Always remember to check out any writing job thoroughly and read every word of any contract or release you are asked to sign. A legitimate writing job and/or market should never require you to pay anything for it -- the money goes to you. Also check the classifieds of your local newspaper; sometimes companies looking for writers will advertise in them versus the internet.

I hope you're all having a good holiday (Happy Chanukah, and Happy Kwanzaa, to all of you whose celebrations are today.

  1. I was just going to start looking for some new (read that as "outside my circle of friends and friends-of-friends") writing contracts. How did you know? ;-) Thanks for the timely info!

    LOL. I'm already a technical author - an alarming number of SF authors start in this profession, so perhaps it bodes well for the future.
