Before I get to today’s list of writing jobs, I wanted to say thank you to everyone who has taken the time to send a message to let me know about the jobs they’ve gotten using my list of leads. Congrats! It really does make me happy to know that other writers are finding this list useful!
Today’s list has a little something for everyone: online writing jobs, on-site Canadian writing jobs, and calls for submissions. I’ve also included some freelance writing jobs for beginners and a remote copyediting job.
One quick note for writers not in Canada: Please do not apply for the jobs under the “Canadian Writing Jobs” header as they are on-site positions for local writers who reside in Canada. All jobs under the “Remote Writing Jobs” header are open to writers anywhere, as are the Calls for Submissions.
