Happy Monday and first day of fall! It’s a soggy one here after a weekend that was insanely hot and not in the least bit fall-like. My coffee (#2) is strong and hot and I hope yours is too. Now, let’s get to today’s list of freelance writing jobs. It’s a good one today with remote writing and editing jobs open to all, as well as some onsite Canadian writing jobs. There’s also one call for submissions for any steamy romance and erotica writers out there.
Thank you to everyone who entered my giveaway! I’ll draw the winner of my giveaway later today and post the video here and on my social media pages. I’m a one-woman show and will be kicking it old school by picking the winner out of a hat – a ceramic acorn, actually. Had far more entries than I’d anticipated, so you’ll have to bear with me while I print off each entry to place in the acorn.
PS – If you’ve had any success finding a writing gig off my list, I’d love to hear it! Please comment below 🙂
