Hey everyone! Happy Sunday!

Well, it does feel like Spring has sprung and summer is just around the corner. I don’t know about you, but I am always in the best mood when the weather starts to get better - I feel like we deserve it after such a long winter!!

All this excitement in the air has got me thinking of ways we can all get better. I’ve seen a bunch of posts one Reddit and Twitter about people asking for advice on a few things like how to start out, how to manage the ‘business side’ of freelancing, and a few other bits. Is there something you’re struggling with? Reply and let me know!

We’re thinking of putting together a couple guides to help writers, especially those starting out, and would love to hear what you think.

As always, reach out if you need any help!

Also, remember that our subscription package gives access to a historical jobs list of over 800 opportunities, over 200 publications and their pitching guidelines + fees, also 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.
