The writing leads we post here at FWJ are only part of the job market for freelancers. While I do encourage you to apply for anything you see here that you are interested in, there are other ways to get clients for your business. One way is to find other businesses that offer services that complement, not compete with, yours.
Here are some examples:
If you do web content writing, you could contact SEO consulting companies. These people are talking to site owners as part of their business all the time and they need to keep their sites stocked with fresh content on a regular basis. If they do offer writing services, then the SEO company may hire you directly, and if the SEO consulting company doesn’t offer web content services as part of their basket of services, they might be willing to give your name to their clients. Be sure to offer the SEO company something in return, such as offering to forward the names of site owners you know who may want to hire a consultant.
You could also approach businesses that offer Virtual Assistant services to marketers or web design companies. Once again, they may not offer writing services to their clients, but they are in contact with people who may need to hire writers. Once again, offer to recommend the company to anyone you come across who may need to hire a VA or who are looking to upgrade their existing sites. [Read more…]
We’re still looking for writers to help us develop test prep products. Specifically, we’re asking for authors who have backgrounds in test prep for science and biology, or general knowledge and aptitude for biology, to help us develop an AP Biology product. PrepLogic is a test prep company based in Tampa, Florida, and this is an opportunity to work with a company involved in the test prep industry for seven years. These educational test prep products represent a brand new line of offerings from our company, and authors who work well with us will continue to work with us as this segment of the company expands.
This position pays between $12 and $22 a page, depending on experience and writing style.

It’s hard to toot your own horn when you’re adhering to terms of non-disclosure so as not to reveal your identity. How am I supposed to prove to you I’m qualified if I can’t give you detailed information about my background and accomplishments?
Since I’m a firm believer that obstacles are what you see when you take your eyes off of your goal, I’m looking forward, and improvising with my abridged version of the childhood game “20 Questions” (tightened to 10 for the web.)

The FWJ community is a lucky lot. You have the opportunity to pick from an extremely talented pool of writers for a new bi-weekly blogger. The tough part for all of you now and for the next several weeks is to decide on what you’re looking for in a blogger. All of the writers in the running have skill and experience, but what separates #3 from the pack?
I am fluid, focused and tough.
FWJ needs the type of writer who can appeal to a broad range of writers with credibility and style. My writing career has thrived because of my ability to be flexible. I’ve written blogs, magazine, web and newspaper articles, book and movie reviews, brochures, corporate memos, resumes, cover letters and press releases. I’ve edited all of the above and more. I know when a subject could use a little humor and when it is best to give it to the audience straight. When a subject or trend comes up that I’m not familiar with, I research it, learn it, use it and teach it. [Read more…]
Good morning FWJ Friends! I’ve got some internships for you today, along with opps for bloggers, editors, and proofreaders. Gigs for technical writers made the list, too. If you have medical or legal experience, there are leads posted today that you might be interested in. An employer is looking for someone who wants to write about solar energy.
Do any of these jobs have your name written all over them? I hope you find something that piques your interest on today’s list.

Who am I? I mean, really, who am I to think that I can teach all of you? I have gleaned a lot of great information from this community over the years, and I just want to give back a little. Or a lot.
I love to learn. Toss me a topic, tell me what you want to hear, and I’ll go look for it. And then I will return to share. My knowledge is useless unless I can share it.
I’ve struggled to learn how to be a good freelancer – a freelancer with steady work and decent pay. And I had help along the way from the more experienced. And now I’d like to give back.
Let me share with you what I’ve learned. The day to day struggles to find good work. Wrestling with words, phrases, pages. Print and online writing. Promotions. How to work your business. Where to get additional support. Letting you know you’re not alone.
I’m not perfect. I don’t know it all. But I promise to share with you as I continue to learn along the way. We’re colleagues. We’re in this writing life together. Let me share it with you.
