How To Find Writing Work



Are you looking for new writing work?  It can be a challenge to build a career in any area, but it is often even harder to do so when you are in a smaller town. 

Sure, there may be a huge market for talented freelancers in your area, but let’s face it, it is not New York where you can find countless job vacancies in your field of freelance writing.  When you are looking for freelance writing work, it is important to look outside the box as well as trying the tried and true employment options.

As writers work to build their career, it can be challenging to do so if they do not live in an area that is known for having publishers.  So, when you get an assignment, you need to ensure that you do it thoroughly and right on task for what the client is looking for.  Do not present a piece of work without making sure that it is the best you can give.

Job vacancies for freelance writing are rarely found in newspaper ads and help wanted ads.  Instead, they are filled by people who have a proven talent.  It is important that you maintain a strong portfolio to do this. 

If you have not had any freelance writing experience for a long time, it may be beneficial to write a few pieces on your own, to display your qualifications.  You can present them as a sample of your work. 

The most important feature to remember when looking for jobs like freelance writing is that you can find them when you look online.  Yes, take your search online because that is where people go to look for freelancers of all types.  If you do not have experience, get some free projects out there and present your work in the best format every time. 

Build your freelance business from start to finish on the quality on-task assignments that you present as finished work.
