I don’t know another service like it, which is why it’s atthe top of my list of top writing jobs sites. For a measly $10 a month, you get all that plus adaily list of job leads collated from a range of writing newsletters, saving you the trouble ofreading them yourself. As a final bonus, there’s a growing Writer’s Bridge writing community onFacebook and a blog providing writing advice.Freelance Writing GigsThis award winning freelance writing jobs site, now owned by SplashPress media, sifts throughthe jobs on offer to find the ones that are likely to be genuine. There’s also a minimumpayment threshold for jobs posted on the site. That means writers who get gigs this way aremuch less likely to get scammed and much more likely to pick up paying, long term gigs.Anything that looks too ridiculous or scammy is weeded out before you get the list, preventingyou from wasting time. There are hundreds of writers who make this their first port of call eachday, not only for the job listings but for the valuable advice on running a writing career that’savailable from a talented group of writers.About Freelance WritingAnne Wayman has been collating lists of writing jobs on About Freelance Writing for years.There’s a daily update on what’s available and somehow she always manages to have a coupleof opportunities I’ve not seen anywhere else. Anne’s approach is slightly different. Instead ofweeding out the low paid jobs altogether, she lists them separately, so that people who don’tmind taking jobs in that category – or new writers looking for experience – can check them outif they want to. Anne’s site also features advice for writers – and she’s a veteran in thebusiness, so is worth listening to.Freelance SwitchIf you are into other types of freelancing, such as designing the stuff that you write, thenFreelance Switch may be more your style. The site has a job board featuring opportunities forall kinds of freelancers. The only catch is that it costs $7 a month to subscribe. On the plusside, jobs available through this site pay pretty well, so the cost may well be worth it. Whileyou’re on the site, don’t forget to check out the Freelance Switch blog which has posts from ahuge team of experienced writers.
