The Writer's Job Newsletter #66 | Worth the wait...

The Writer's Job Newsletter
The Writer's Job NewsletterPublished on May 08, 2022

Happy Sunday to 3,034 motivated writers 👋🏼 

Sorry we’re a little late with this week! It’s been a busy weekend.

I've been helping my little sister write an assignment for university - should I invoice her?

She’s much earlier in her journey. It was a good reminder that we all start somewhere. I took a step back and thought about how much I’ve improved over the years (still a long way to go though!)

Anyway, just by showing up and putting in the effort, we’re always improving.

You’re doing great. 😊

It’s another big week!

•   2 free resources: freelancers toolkit and an essay writing bootcamp 

•   16 calls to pitch 📢

•   16 writing jobs inc. an early career fellowship and summer internship ☀️

•   Special thanks to those who replied to last week’s email 😉

Also, remember that our supporters get access to an exclusive bonuses. Every job we've shared (over 800 opportunities!) and a list over 200 publications that pay!

Resource of the week

Database of freelance tools from Boost

Check out this free database packed full of tools to manage your freelancing.

It’s packed full guides, cheatsheets, and more. Think about sales, mindset, business etc. It’s not writer-specific but it’s a real goldmine

Love seeing companies put out this sort of free content! Check it out here

Essay writing camp with Summer Brennan 

Now more writer focused: here's a free essay writing camp May 16 - 20th.

Summer also mentors, features, and even pays emerging writers in her newsletter. Details here.

Alright, let’s get onto the opps! 

Calls to Pitch
