Coaching and Consulting, Writing and the Writer

7 Newsletters for Freelance Writers

One of the main questions my freelance writing coaching clients ask me is: “Where can I find writing jobs?” There are several answers to this, of course. But one of the simplest? “Subscribe to newsletters!” They can be a great source of job listings and information on writing contests, and often they also provide tutorials, how-tos, and further resources.

The trick, of course, is subscribing to the right newsletters.


Which are the right newsletters to find writing jobs?

Well, that’s where I come in! Why not start with the little selection below?

An additional perk:

Some of the shown job listings, calls for submissions, etc. can be in-depth reviews of writing opportunities, while other newsletters concentrate on collecting information of current writing jobs on sites like Craigslist or particularly writing or freelance-related job sites. In those cases, they also normally link to the original source. Thus, instead of solely relying on the content of the newsletters you can collect links to new places you can start scouring regularly to find writing jobs.
