Places For Writers is blog that I found which provides money making opportunities for professional writers or journalist. It’s a simple blog but the information provided is direct and straight to the point. It’s basically a blog that provides information regarding work, task or contest on writing. There are magazines seeking for poetry, prose, articles, reviews, essay and interviews. You can also find online journals looking for writers that can produce fiction and non fictional stories. If you’re a professional writer who likes to write at home online, perhaps you’ll find suitable jobs in this blog.
There are also other money making opportunities at Places For Writers that you can try out too. The blog also provides information regarding contests organized by online magazine, journals and press. Some of the contests are 2010 Chapbook Competition organized by Caketrain Journal and Press, Creative Non-Fiction Prize organized by Malahat Review and 33rd Annual International 3-Day Novel Contest. If you’re interested regarding writing contests, please check out my previous post Money Making Opportunities in Creative Writing Contests.
Places For Writers also provides other useful information regarding writing. The blog has gathered a list of Canadian literary journals, International literary journals and publishers. You may find the list of writing resources very helpful too. The list of National writing groups and provincial writing groups comes in very handy when trying to produce a written work.
Places For Writers looks more like an information collection website rather than a blog. The site has been collecting and providing useful information for writers since 1997. Although there isn’t much to read about but the simple information on writing assignments from magazines, journals and press is worth check out from time to time. It’s a blog that gather all money making opportunities for professional writers. This is a Canadian writer’s resources blog but the information provided is very helpful even to international writers too.
P/S: I think the site should consider include comments or a forum section. I’m sure writers who visited the site love to have a community platform to discuss and exchange ideas.
