Does anyone know any comapanies interested in freelance writing?

I love to write and seem to be pretty good. Want to make some extra money in writing if I can. Does anyone know where I can find companies looking for freelance writers?

  • There's a big book called Writer's Market at bookstores. It has listings of everything and what they want and how long they want it etc. There's also a magazine called Writer's Digest (magazine rack) and it gives you writing tips and ways to publish your books.

  • I freelance wrote for magazines and newspapers for many years. I did some writing for companies, but they came to me because they knew I was a published writer. The Writer's Market is a great place to find magazines and periodicals that you may want to write for. Now with all of the internet publishing going on, you can get involved with something online as well. I'm working on a novel now that all my kids are in college, but I also suggest starting a blog. Publishers and businesses want to see your work, and many ask to see your website or blog now. They can see whether you develop a following this way, and read your writing.

    Good Luck!

  • Consider writing for Associated Content, The Examiner or EzineArticles. Once an article is submitted, it is usually approved within 7 days. I have added my referral inks below if you'd like to join.

    Then (on the Examiner) search for my name when asked who referred you.
