It’s an exciting time to be a writer. There are so many outlets for writing, whether you are concerned about paying gigs or just expressing your creativity while building an audience!
I have used multiple sources to find clients. websites like elance or craigslist can hook you up with jobs (as always be careful)
I’ve also found that people can find you through writing on websites like Ezine Articles or even by writing for a podcast.
One thing that you can get out of any of these is building a network. Networking can make things happen. I would use, for example, I got cast in a short film because of being involved with the podcast It’s about time travel agency. It’s a cool writing gig that landed me a role in a film. how cool is that?
Speaking of It’s about time, the first episode of season two is now online and it’s a nail biter. Loose ends from last season get tied up, and new plots start to unravel.. tune in..
