Writing or Editing Gigs – Illustrating jobs

With the economy taking its’ good old-time trying to perk up, I am sure many of you are starting to think, How far do I have to go to find a job.  Well, you don’t have to go as far as Michelle Munger’s July illustration.  Here are some online job related sites for writer’s and illustrator’s you might like to check out.  Darlene Beck-Jacobson had a few on her blog the other week.  I added a few more, so here they are in one spot. You might have others you could add.  You can leave them in with the comments and I will add them to the list. 

1. www.allfreelancewriting.com: Browse by category or specific freelance markets.

2. www.freelanced.com Post your skills and look at jobs posted.  Not just writers and illustrators.

3. http://www.simplyhired.com/a/jobs/list/q-freelance+writer : Straight listings. Can’t vouch for all the listings. Looks like some are worth checking out.

4. www.duotrope.com  : Free resource for writers of fiction, poetry, and non-fiction. Detailed descriptions and market database for the perfect place to submit what you write.  Lots of short story markets as well.

5. www.freelancewritinggigs.com : daily postings of the latest freelance opportunities.

6. www.mediabistro.com  You will need to register – it’s free!

7.  www.publishersmarketplace.com/jobs/ :  For serious (mostly) full-time Publishing Industry Jobs.

They present job-seekers great new possibilities every day and conveniences like an RSS ping to keep you posted on every new offering. Among the latest:

Associate Publisher, Nonfiction – Ballantine Bantam Dell [Full Time]
Random House (New York, NY)

Please make sure you check out everything before you send your information on a site you do not know. I have not used any of the sites below, except for PublishersMarketplace.com, but I know others who have.

Talk tomorrow,

Kathy

  2. As always, you post great stuff, Kathy 🙂 And I LOVE the colorful illustration 🙂

    But the one thing I REALLY want to say today is “thank you” for being the BEST Regional Advisor anywhere ever (and I think I can confidently state that as fact). As of the stroke of midnight, you are officially stepping down after 10 years of devoted, selfless service to all of us in—and out—of the New Jersey Chapter.

    Here’s to more time to yourself!!!! You SO deserve it 🙂 oxox
