I'm thrilled that it's been exactly 1 year since I started this newsletter (I think anyways? I swear I started in like Feb or March) but either way, the numbers have racked up and we're at number 52! We've grown from an idea to a community of over 2750 writers, alive on all social media channels and with more products and features coming out every month. Thank you for all your support - you guys are ridiculous to put faith into me, and I try come rain or shine!
On that note: I've just come off a flight, I'm tired as anything so I'm going to get straight into it!
Firstly I'd like to thank again our latest partner ProWritingAid! They're an absolutely awesome company who have given our community of writers 30% off their lifetime membership!
If you want to know more, get in touch or message them directly referencing this offer! ProWritingAid - @prowritingaid - facebook.com/ProWritingAid
Secondly, the 2021 Freelancers report is on the way! I appreciate your patience, but it's just difficult running this as a one-person team! I use "we" a lot, I should probably say I more often...but then again, Della is doing an insanely good job with Twitter!
Finally, this week we've found so many jobs. It's literally insane how many opportunities for writers there are right now!! If you're new, try to get as much experience/exposure as possible. Go go go go!!!

Which features a historical jobs list of over 600 opportunities and a future competitions page!
Calls to Pitch
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.
