Happy Friday! Hope you like the new design! I’m still humming and hawing about it, so there may be some changes to the colour palette, but aside from that I’m pleased.
Instead of copying and pasting excerpts of writing job postings, I am writing a brief summary of each myself so you get the info you need with less reading. This is a little more time-consuming, especially as a one-woman show, but it’s still free to find and post jobs here—though I won’t turn down a free cup of coffee or gifts. *wink*
As before, you can click the link at the beginning and end of each post to go to the original job posting for full details or to apply. The stuff that was in the footer is now to your right in the sidebar. That’s about it as far as the changes go.
Today’s list is a big one with lots of remote and freelance writing jobs. There are also 3 calls for submissions, and of course, writing jobs for my fellow Canadians.
I’ll be drawing the winner of the giveaway tomorrow, so be sure to pop in!
