Writing Jobs October 14, 2020

Now that all that pie’s out of my system I’m feeling a little perkier. Hope you’re all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, too. If not, there’s always coffee!

Today’s list has it all: online writing jobs open to freelance writers anywhere, in-house and online Canadian writing jobs, and a call for submissions. Within those there are freelance writing gigs for gamers, SEO writing jobs, and some editing jobs—to name a few.

Hope your coffee’s hot and your day is productive. See you back here tomorrow with another list of writing gigs!

PS – Today’s your last chance to take advantage of Amazon Prime Day for deals on books, office supplies, gadgets, and perhaps some toilet paper since COVID-19 cases are up and people seem to have gone mad again, stockpiling TP. Oh! And for those who’ve asked me about my snazzy pink keyboard and mouse, it’s on sale today!
