Hey Freelancing Friends!
I’m so glad to have so many new people becoming paying subscribers! For those of you who have been long-time subscribers, thank you for sharing some of the goofier things from this newsletter on social media. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it!
This week there are a whole lot of options for fantastic new jobs, and some solid freelance opportunities. As always, I’ve included editor emails in this newsletter, where they’re available (or constructed them out of what I know about the publication–reverse engineering FTW!). This is an invaluable resource for those of you on a freelance path, looking for quick ways to get in touch with the right editor at your target outlet. I recommend that all my paid subscribers save these newsletters to go back to when they have the right pitch ready to go. It saves SO much time.
All the jobs and gigs in this paid newsletter offer more than $1 per word, or more than $100k a year unless otherwise noted. I do this to help those of us who are VERY busy and VERY successful weed out the low paying trash that seems to permeate the space lately.
This week the newsletter for paid subscribers features jobs and gigs from publications like People Magazine, AFAR, Paper Magazine, NPR, New York Times, Condé Nast Traveller, CQ, USA Today, Kickstarter, CNN Underscored, Vox, and Yahoo, plus a whole lot more.
There are two bonus Dishonorable Mentions (one of which just cracked me up) at the end of this list, plus a nugget of insight on a job that I recommend you avoid LIKE THE PLAGUE, an insight that comes from first-hand knowledge and experience.
Dishonorable Mentions are reserved for outlets, gigs or platforms that pay astonishingly badly, clearly outline an abusive work environment, or simply have no idea what they are doing. This week’s dishonorable mentions fall more into the head-scratching space and came from a lead a friend and paid subscriber sent me early this week. (THANK YOU!)
If you want to take a look at this week’s paid newsletter, you have two options. Choose the one that fits you best, but from a financial standpoint the $5 a month rate is the better deal. You can cancel at any time.
Either way, enjoy this week’s newsletter!
