41 Freelance Writing Job Leads for the Week of June 12, 2017

Just a word about this week’s listings … one of the things that stood out to me is that while long-form content is certainly popular and some would argue, preferred these days by search engines, shorter articles (400-500 words) are still very in demand too.

Freelance Writer “Cattle Calls”

The following are what I consider “cattle call” listings. While they may not pay off right now, it’s good to get your credentials on file with potential clients like this.

Most of your time should be spent applying to those who are hiring right now, so don’t spend a lot of time applying to these types of listings. But when you see them pop up, if you have time and the process is not too tedious (some of them ask for ridiculous amounts of stuff up front), send in your credentials. One day, out of the blue, you may get an assignment and create a long-lasting relationship that could lead to ongoing work. So they are worth it — just take the long-range view when applying, ok?

40. Freelance, Online Writers: Write for us on a paid-per-project freelance basis and craft custom content for our corporate and nonprofit clients. At Prose you can be your own boss, set your own rates, and write on your own schedule as an independent contractor.
