slide1 Helps Writers Find Freelance Jobs in the Gig Economy

Career-driven freelance writers—or anyone who desires to earn money with their

writing skills—can find plenty of full-time, part-time, and project-based gigs at (OWJ), a searchable jobsite for independent writers.

Brian Scott, a freelance writer since 1996, founded the site in 2006. Each

weekday, M-F, he researches and handpicks new freelance writing jobs and adds

them to the site. On any given day writers can find 10-15 new writing jobs that

pay decent to competitive rates to perform a variety of services for clients, such


Copywriting: writing marketing copy for brochures, landing pages,

advertisements, etc. to help companies increase their sales;

Blogging: writing a series of long or short-form posts or listicles for

clients in specific industries to engage readers and drive website


Content writing (or SEO writing): writing optimized digital content

for clients who want to drive traffic to their sites organically.

Magazine writing: writing informative feature articles or service

pieces for editors of digital and print publications;

Technical writing: writing instructional manuals for product

manufacturers and technology developers who need to simplify tech

jargon into everyday language for a consumer audience; and

Proofreading: reviewing and correcting grammatical errors in

manuscripts, scholarly papers, or website copy for publishers.

Because Online-Writing-Jobs lets users narrow their search according to specialty,

job-type, pay rate, and employment type, writers can find opportunities most

ideal to their interests, skillsets, and work schedule. Using the site's intuitive

search box, writers can pinpoint topics or industries of interest to write about for


Research studies reveal an increasing trend of semi-retired Baby Boomers, college

students, and even full-time/part-time staff workers driving the growth of the so-


called "gig economy"—forms of accessible contract, independent, 1099 service-

oriented gigs that let individuals earn income in their spare time or even as a full-

time business.

According to Scott, "Freelance writing has become a staple of the growing gig

economy because paid writing gigs are highly accessible with an Internet

connection and individuals can work when they want and where they want—

typically from home or a remote location."

To make it easier to stay current with new jobs, writers can subscribe to Scott's

free daily digest of job alerts (, which he emails to

subscribers each weekday.

Online-Writing-Jobs will be celebrating 10 years of service November 2016.
