Writing Jobs, April 12, 2018

Good morning! This week has just flown right past me! I’ve been busy with writing andJD_LifeAndBiz-Nordic_White_Gray_9 putting the finishing touches on PDF that will be available for download here. The PDF contains 199 websites that pay freelance writers. Like this site, it’s an up-to-date; no fuss no muss list with a brief summary and link to legitimate, paying websites. The list includes sites of interest for experienced and beginner freelance writers. There will be a nominal charge to download it to help keep this site going. And when I say nominal, I mean no more than a couple of bucks. We’re freelancers, after all! 😉

Anyway, here’s today’s list of freelance writing jobs and opportunities for my fellow Canadian writers, too. I have also included a call for submissions for essays and poetry.

Good luck!
