I spent most of my day meeting a deadline, but better late than never, right?
Today’s list has got online writing jobs for those who write from home and a call for submissions for writers of literary fiction. Of course, I’ve not forgotten my fellow Canadians and have a few on-site writing jobs across Canada, too.
Have a great weekend!
