    Hey Everyone!

    Apologies for the late email today - I've had to run and do a COVID test (which obviously takes up half a day...) as I was exposed to someone who's since tested positive. What a farce!

    Aside from the running around, the weather is dreary and this never ending story drags on. It's been pretty windy in the UK and a few trees have fallen over, but never-the-less, the freelancing show must go on!

    I'll send something more exciting mid-week (have a few things planned) but as always, check out some of the great jobs lined up before --- 2 great 6 figure jobs actually! Why wouldn't you apply??

    As always, if you need any help, please get in touch :)


    As always, If you're a new writer and struggling to find paid work - get in touch and we'll do our best to help! Also, remember that our subscription package gives access to a historical jobs list of over 700 opportunities, over 200 publications and their pitching guidelines + fees, also a future competitions page!


    Calls to Pitch

    I try to ensure all the positions are well-paid, and if not, they’re helpful in some other way. Our readership varies from new writers to established writers, so some jobs are better for others. Either way, if you have any questions, get in touch with me or the employer, see how you can help, and grow your network! I try to only show remote jobs, but sometimes allow odd interesting jobs to pass through.
