Happy Sunday to 3,046 motivated writers 👋🏼
Woah, what a week. Seeing a lot of momentum again! Looks like publications are lining up stories for summer issues, writing jobs are everywhere, and we’ve got some great resources.
Lots going on this week!
• 17 calls to pitch with big publications 📢
• 20 writing jobs with a bunch from contacts through Twitter!
Also, remember that our supporters get access to an exclusive bonuses. Every job we've shared (over 800 opportunities!) and a list over 200 publications that pay!
Let’s dig in! ⬇️⬇️
Resources of the week
A free daily newsletter for news and research, The Bagel
So Ryan, the founder, reached out recently.. I thought they're pretty cool
• He sends out the news and research you need to know, every morning
• I find it's short and sweet but has enough detail to be useful
• For us writers, these sorts of tools are great for research.. it's like part newspaper, part secret weapon! 🤫
• Plus, bagels are the perfect way to start your day, right?!
Check it out here (the newsletter, not the bagel I'm about to eat.. lol)
It’s Publishing Made Easy: Self-publishing service for authors
So this one’s a little more writer-specific.
• They’ve helped over 3000 authors from 15 countries publish their books
• Authors get to keep 100% of their NET royalties (!!)
• I think some of their ~free~ guides are super useful
• Guides on book marketing and the legal side of self-publishing here!
Alright, let’s get onto the opps!
