Freelance Writing Jobs for February 22, 2010

Good morning Freelance Writing Jobs community. I had a full on working weekend, yet didn’t even cross off half the items on my “to do” list. Mind you, that’s not a complaint.  I did some fun family things, but mostly the other residents of Casa Ng were doing their own things and it was a good time for me to play catch up. Someone once asked me if I wouldn’t rather spend weekends doing what I enjoy. The truth is, I enjoy my work and I’m not quick to ditch it once the weekend comes around.  I’m a workaholic for [Read more…]

Today we’re offering up some parenting markets. We’ve been listing magazine markets and other writing guidelines this week and many valid questions are being raised. For example, how do I know these markets accept freelancers, and also, how do I know the pay rate is what they say it is? It’s simple, I did some research. Research that’s easy enough for every single freelance writer to do if he or she wishes to write for certain markets. I looked up many markets on the web and, also, backed them up with a copy of the Writer’s Market – the 2010 [Read more…]

5 Things to Do Before You Query

Laptop3

Last week’s post “6 Tips for Finding New Freelance Writing Markets” received a comment worth mentioning. Though I was brief in my roundup, the commenter Robert Earle Howells offered some good reminders: These are all ways to troll, and they’re good. You can find great titles and get inspired. But remember, that doesn’t mean you’re ready to pitch them. One issue of a magazine, or even writer guidelines (which are often outdated), or a WM listing (ditto), can’t prepare you for a decent query. You need to look at the archives. You need to find the name and e-mail address [Read more…]
