Before I brew my next pot of coffee on this very Monday-like Monday, here is today’s list of paid writing opportunities. It’s short but sweet with work-from-home / online writing jobs open to writers anywhere and calls for submissions for mystery writers. Of course, there are also some on-site writing jobs for my fellow Canadian writers.
May your coffee be strong and your Monday easy-peasy!
