So 2021 is coming to an end and wow…what a PITA for a year! 2 coronavirus waves, a new US president, the launch of TWJN…what didn’t happen this year!?

Writing a newsletter is a bit different to traditional media in that I’m not story telling, I’m not writing for a Corporate: but rather, I’m providing a very specific service/product to the readers. TWJN offers the best paid freelance writing jobs but more importantly, we’re also trying to make it easier for writers to get paid. 

That’s the exact goal here: we want to make it easier for you to get paid by writing. No one should struggle to find paid work.

Looking towards 2021, we have a few projects coming your way that'll accelerate your career like crazy:

- Our 2021 State of Freelance Writing Report!

- Our proprietary database of paid-magazine opportunities (details of which publishers are always looking for pitches, and how to get in touch)

- All the jobs we’ve ever posted in one place (huge amount of intelligence in this dataset)

- Get ahead by checking out the next 12 months of competitions (prepare months in advanced for the higher paying opportunities)

- Live-tracker for high-paying jobs on Upwork/Freelancer and Fiverr (find high-paying jobs through other websites)

- Telegram/Discord channel for live job updates (apply first and increase your odds of getting hired!)

We’ve been building these high-power projects in the background to help accelerate your freelance writing career, so in the next two weeks, expect to hear a lot about these!

If you want to hear more about these projects, get in touch with us now! Get ahead and sign up early!

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.

All the jobs I could find this week!

A bit of a different set up this week because of Christmas. Not as many freelance opportunities but instead, an insane amount of writing jobs!
