The market out there, for writers and journalists, is never especially robust in the United States. But even with the rise of plagiaristic A.I. programs, I’ve found there’s still a demand for people who can write well. It’s just about finding the opportunity.
What’s cool about this newsletter is the community that’s been built. There are many readers from a wide array of industries. It isn’t just writers reading a writer (not that there’s anything wrong with that) and I encounter people here from all walks of life, especially in the comments section.
The other day, I had an idea: why not use this newsletter to run a one-off classifieds section for writers seeking work? Here’s how this will go: if you are someone with a business or an individual in need of a writer to assist you, you can email me a little job posting (a description of the work, with a pay range) and I can try to connect you with a writer and/or post it here.
To email, simply reply to this post when it hits your inbox, or send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. No scam jobs! If you’re a business owner or you need a ghostwriter or you’re looking for a tutor or anything that pays genuine money—writers, never work for free—contact me when you can. I want to get a good number postings listed, if possible. (As in, there are people seeking help from a writer.)
And to clarify: this is not for me. Please don’t reach out looking to hire me, as kind as that may be. I’m all set. I want to connect other writers and try to be useful.
Let’s see if this works!
Hey, I was interested in commissioning a writer on a tough local issue, but am totally clueless about process and pay range, and am also unsure about how best to respect the writer's editorial integrity. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
This is a great idea. I am always hiring and actually about to post for grant writer(I know this isnt journalistic position, but the best GW's are creative writers) in the coming days. :)
