Happy Sunday Everyone!

Help! If you’re a hiring editor (the person with the budget), we’d love to speak to you! It’d really help the newsletter, so we appreciate any time you can offer! (questions about the industry)

Time doesn’t stop: not for you and certainly not for me. It’s been a slog of a year and the worst news possible has come: Omicron! (Dun dun dun!)

It doesn’t make much of a difference for freelance writers. If anything, it’s great for online readership when people have to work from home, but for pretty much everything else (like our mental health), it’s pretty darn tootin’ bad. 

I think going into the holidays I'm going to make the effort to see friends/family earlier than later before things get hairy. As we've learned from previous waves, it's better to act quickly! So as of right now, I'm going to get off Twitter and set some calendar dates with close friends =]

Note to self: "Tisssss the season to be jolly! Fa la la la la, la la, la, la"

Remote Writing Jobs

I try to ensure all the positions are well-paid, and if not, they’re helpful in some other way. Our readership varies from new writers to established writers, so some jobs are better for others. Either way, if you have any questions, get in touch with me or the employer, see how you can help, and grow your network! I try to only show remote jobs, but sometimes allow odd interesting jobs to pass through.
