Happy Sunday to 4,504 motivated writers 👋🏼 

How’s everyone doing? I’m doing great! It’s another Sunday morning and at the airport (again!).

This time I’m heading to Orlando in Florida. For another conference (not to see Micky Mouse… this time 😔) 

Yes, I’ve had A LOT of work travel recently.

But that's enough about me, you’ve got some great writing opps in store. It's a big week for full time and freelance jobs this time around! 🥳

Okay, let’s get to it! ⬇️⬇️

1️⃣ Resource of the week

Chelsea Ciruzzo’s free 16-page guide on freelancing 

I’m quite jealous of writers starting off today. There’s SO many great *free* resources out there. And here’s one of them.

Chelsea wrote up this awesome guide on how to send pitches and get published.

It’s really a end-to-end guide on what to do, from getting started, to submitting invoices, managing your time, and everything else in between. 

Give it a read here!
