Jobs For Freelance Writers – Online Sources

I define a freelance writing job as one I can do in my pajamas at home, which is the criteria I used for this list. In the table below you’ll find the sources I find to be most productive – with some comments.

I also suggest you look at certain Craigslist postings which you can see here.

And if you’re interested in bidding on freelance writing jobs you’ll find links to bidding sites here. I don’t like them much because they tend to drive pay for freelancers down; some people report having good luck. If you try them stick to your price.

It’s probably a good idea if you look at the category containing lots of links to articles about how to land a job. There are some tricks to the trade.
