The Writer's Job Newsletter
The Writer's Job NewsletterPublished on May 15, 2022

Happy Sunday to 3,046 motivated writers 👋🏼 

Woah, what a week. Seeing a lot of momentum again! Looks like publications are lining up stories for summer issues, writing jobs are everywhere, and we’ve got some great resources.

Lots going on this week!

•   17 calls to pitch with big publications 📢

•   20 writing jobs with a bunch from contacts through Twitter!

•   2 free resources: daily newsletter and guides to self-publish 

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!

Let’s dig in! ⬇️⬇️

Resources of the week

A free daily newsletter for news and research, The Bagel

So Ryan, the founder, reached out recently.. I thought they're pretty cool

• He sends out the news and research you need to know, every morning

• I find it's short and sweet but has enough detail to be useful

• For us writers, these sorts of tools are great for research.. it's like part newspaper, part secret weapon! 🤫

• Plus, bagels are the perfect way to start your day, right?!

Check it out here (the newsletter, not the bagel I'm about to eat.. lol)

It’s Publishing Made Easy: Self-publishing service for authors

So this one’s a little more writer-specific.

• They’ve helped over 3000 authors from 15 countries publish their books

• Authors get to keep 100% of their NET royalties (!!)

• I think some of their ~free~ guides are super useful

• Guides on book marketing and the legal side of self-publishing here!

Alright, let’s get onto the opps!
