Writing Jobs, August 28, 2020

It’s a two-cup morning around here but I’ve managed to put together a pretty meaty list of writing job leads. Today’s list begins with remote freelance writing gigs open to writers anywhere. Those are followed by Canadian writing opportunities for my fellow desk coffee writing jobs canadacanuck writers. And to round things out there are calls for submissions for several topics/titles for Chicken Soup For The Soul books.

If you want to follow via email (link in the sidebar) you can have the list delivered hot and fresh to your inbox the second it’s published. If you come across any freelance writing gigs that you feel are worth sharing with your fellow writers, send me the link and I’ll add it to the list. Here because you want to hire a writer?
