Happy Sunday to 4,845 motivated writers 👋🏼
How’s everyone doing? It’s another big week of jobs… 27 calls to pitch!!
I think this is the most I’ve seen for a while. It looks like a lot of publications are gearing up for their end-of-year posts (already!)
Seeing these types of posts makes me wonder where the year has gone 😭😭
Enough teasing - let’s get to it! ⬇️ ⬇️
So, what do we have this week?
1️⃣ Join a fast-growing community of remote-based writers
2️⃣ 27 calls to pitch 📢
3️⃣ 16 writing jobs all remote!
Remember, our supporters get exclusive bonuses (and love, and karma, and better skin, and... more 😉)
1️⃣ Resource of the week [Sponsored]
Work from anywhere, any time: Marker Content is hiring!
I'm always interested in different ways that businesses and publishers try to get their content out there... and how this can benefit writers.
Marker got in touch, and their business model can hugely benefit writers. On Marker, writers submit their work to a library (including their old work), and earn 80% of their total article sale, no catches, no extra work needed!
It sounds pretty flexible! Marker sells the uploaded articles to agencies, publishers, small businesses & web developers and they're growing their writing team, so now is the perfect time to sign up.
