Freelance Writing Jobs for August 4, 2009

A couple of years ago there was much drama over a scammy company called Laray Carr. This company ripped off writers and designers and led to a full scale FBI investigation. Well, it appears the people behind Laray Carr are back again, under the name Niche Age Media. I won’t rehash all the sordid details here, espcially when Victoria Strauss just did so at Writers Beware and tells the tale so well, but I will ask you to check out these former posts here and at Writer’s Beware so you don’t fall victim to these scammy people. Writer’s Beware: Laray Carr Publications, Laray Carr Update. Thanks to everyone who wrote to bring the situation to my attention, and thanks especially for looking out for your fellow writers.

    I can’t believe they are back in action! I was taken by them. :( I wrote 15 articles for assorted magazines that ended up not existing. I did eventually sell those articles on Constant Content, but still.

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention!

    I don’t know about the Upscale mens magazine. Hush still owes me $300 for an article for more than a year ago. All responsive when they wanted me to right. No response when it was time to compensate for the work. Watch out for them…

    I was offline for a week or so and came back to this new format for job leads. Just wanted to let you know that I love it! So much easier to find the leads that work for me. Thanks!

    Hush is an adult entertainment magazine with lots of nude women photos on its site, just so y’all know.

    The social green Web site internship (#5) mentions that the intern can give some or all of their pay to their favorite charity. What, don’t writers need to eat?
