Talk to Deb about seeing your ad here….


  1. says

    Deb, I wanted to thank you for posting the market listings this week.
    I’ve been in a major writer’s “funk” for a long time now, struggling to find freelance work, afraid to make a wrong move. I was very familiar with many of the magazines you listed–had one sitting on my desk next to me. Something in the irony of that made me send a pitch to the mag. Within an hour, the editor replied and said my pitch was good but he’d printed a story slightly similar, but similar enough, and couldn’t do it now & wished me luck finding a home for my piece. It was the best rejection I’ve received in a long time. I’m starting to see my writer’s spark flicker again . . . Thanks for the inspiration.

    #4 for Writer Wanted leads to Kijii (sp) and is just another person trying to get people to sign up for ‘adult site reviews’. I’ve gotten the exact same response from several gigs I applied to that use different wording in the ads. Here is the reply- DON’T sign up, I got caught in this scam last year! So far, I’ve gotten this email 4 times this week!

    “Hi there,
    Thanks for your interest in the website reviewer position. We are currently looking for honest people with a keen eye for detail to visit various adult sites online and write the things they like and dislike about each. We will require 12 reviews per week which are due by 2pm EST every Friday.

    The starting wage for this post is $350 per week which rises after 6 months. No previous experience is required for this position. The only requirement we have is that you submit a 100-word review of the member’s area at a pre-selected site ( It’s completely free to join so don’t worry about any costs (be sure to cancel within 3 days or you will be billed).

    Please submit this review to [email protected] within 48 hours if you’re still interested. This position can be taken from anywhere, it’s going to be a home-based position. If this isn’t for you we thank you for your time.

    Thanks for your time
    Pauline Marshall
    The Writer’s Guild”

  3. Nancy Varian says

    Thanks for the leads, Deb. Saturday is my day to look for new baskets for my eggs; as in, “don’t keep your all your eggs in one basket”. I always start Saturday on your site.

    I love Saturdays! :-)


  4. Brendan says

    I second JulieF – you might want to put a note about this, Deb.

    I didn’t sign up, but I received the same email she did, and looking at the site they ask you to sign up for (and cancel from to not be charged) shows pretty clearly that they will charge you $40 anyway, unless you sign up for other paid sites. In fact, it says explicitly it is not a trial membership and you will be charged.

    Don’t want anyone to get scammed!

    I am putting together a national tour this June 2011 with some reality tv stars and wanted to know if you knew of anyone that wrote sponsorship letters.
