Guide Review - Website Review - Online Writing Jobs

This site used to be forum-based. Potential employers could post help wanted blurbs as a thread. However, the new layout is quite a welcome change! The site is arranged with a header that functions as a sorting mechanism- writers click on the type of jobs they are interested in (ghostwriting, copyediting), and the middle of the page displays the results.

Results are listed in date order with most of the important information displayed before you even click to the job description. Information displayed includes title, date posted, and location. The only information lacking is pay rate, although this may be a difficult task to incorporate in the preliminary listing.

This is a job list aggregator, which means that it pulls writing jobs from other sites, and these are not first postings. However, it will serve to cut down your search time significantly. Highly recommended for the busy freelance writer!
