Deadlines, an extended long weekend, and a cold have kept me away these past few days. My sincerest apologies, but as a one woman show, it’s been tough. Hopefully today’s long list of paid writing opportunities more than makes up for my absence.
Today’s list features lots of work from home writing jobs and calls for submissions open to writers anywhere. If online writing jobs aren’t your bag and you happen to be based in Canada, there are also some pretty great Canadian writing jobs across this big, beautiful country of ours.
