Happy Sunday to 4,437 motivated writers 👋🏼
How’s everyone doing? So, last week was a big week for writers.
This is a big week for opportunities!!
I can’t remember the last time we put out over 30 calls to pitch! Plus a bunch of freelance, contract, and full-time writing gigs. You're in for a treat.
I’ll keep it light up top. We’re heading off to this music festival today (Austin City Limits, if you’re curious) and I need to start getting ready!
One quick note: I appreciate you all! I’ve loved getting to know some of you over the last few months. Don’t be a stranger. Hit reply and say hello 😊
Okay, now let’s get to it! ⬇️⬇️
So, what do we have this week?
2️⃣ 30 calls to pitch 📢
3️⃣ 17 writing jobs

1️⃣ Resource of the week
By now, you all know I’m a sucker for a good freebie. And this free webinar from NYU feels like it was made just for us.
I always find it so useful to hear this type of thing directly from the editors. They’re the ones making decisions about what to include.
When: Thursday Oct 27 at 12:30PM ET
