Happy Sunday to 4,953 motivated writers 👋🏼
How’s everyone doing? It’s an interesting week for writing opps and jobs! 🤔
It looks like calls to pitch with transparent pay were a little light… but there’s a whole bunch of super-well paid full time and freelance opportunities.
Is this what you’re seeing too? Let me know!
It feels like publications are being a more reserved with their pitch rates but a lot more public with compensation for full time jobs, especially in the US.
I’m guessing this stems from legislation in NY and other states which forces companies to publicly state salary ranges. What do you think??
I’ve got a quick favour to ask! 🙏
Let’s get to it! ⬇️ ⬇️
So, what do we have this week?
2️⃣ 21 calls to pitch
3️⃣ 23 writing jobs!
Remember, our supporters get exclusive bonuses (and love, and karma, and better skin, and... more 😉)

1️⃣ Resource of the week
Okay so if you’re a tech nerd (like me🤓) you might have seen a lot of hype about a few AI tools recently (like ChatGPT). There’s a lot of talk about how they'll used.
Will they help us or hurt us?
I think the winners will be the ones that enhance what we do.
Again, I think Moonbeam is a great example of this. They help of writers create blogs, essays, and even grant proposals.
The trick: they help write “boring“ parts so you can focus on more of the 'important' stuff (research, soul, humor 😉)
It's free to try right now 👀)
