Starting Your Career As a Freelance Writer

 


someone out there would "spare them a dime" for their thoughts
and expertise. Many web sites have tried to exceed reasonable   
expectations for freelance writers only to end-up folding,
leaving many writers feeling unsure about their aspirations. This       
industry is in need of an outlet that can raise the awareness of
the continued support freelance writers need to keep this
prolific genre afloat.                                                               
   
Have you ever wanted to explore a variety of freelance writing                                         
genres but did not know where to begin? Have you ever found
freelancing opportunities and the contact person was not
"true-blue"? Are you tired of finding the opportunity, the
right contact people, and remaining penniless? Have your feet
already been wet and your skills tailored for a specific niche
market? Do you want a pathfinder to leave big enough footprints
that will lead you directly to where you want to thrive? Can you
leave all of your "dead-end" writing experiences in the past
and start anew?

Many freelance writers have been left in the cold after several
dot coms geared towards them left them holding the bag. Thus,
they have been in search of a stable outlet that can give them
freedom to express having a major impact on their financial and
professional status.

I found a web site through a Google search that I thought I
should share with my fellow freelance writers. The web site is
http://www.autobyografy.com. At the time of the dot com craze for
freelance writers, I remembered this site being one of the only
ones that was helping independent writers get published.
Honestly, I thought the company went out of business with the
rest of the freelance writer dot coms. However, they are still
here. After visiting the site, I found that they had expanded
their opportunities for writers. The following information is
some of the resources I found on their site:

Writing Jobs - If you are looking for a variety of writing jobs
visit Big Mouth Careers
http://www.autobyografy.com/p/Big_Mouth_Careers/Homepage-Next.php
that offers hiring solutions, castings/jobs and career services
for the arts & entertainment industry as well as 30+ traditional
markets.

Poetry Contest - I remember them having this same contest,
Tribute To A Poet Poetry Contest, several years ago, at the time,
I did not win a cash award but I received a nice gift
certificate. The first prize is now $5,000. Visit
http://www.autobyografy.com search keyword(s): poetry contest or
click any Tribute To A Poet link.

eZine - They have an online magazine, ONE e-magazine
http://www.autobyografy.com/p/ONE/Subscriptions/Homepage.php
where freelance writers can get paid up to $60 per article. This
caught my eye, and the magazine itself blew my mind, it is so
creative inside.

Career Starter - I found a talent guide for writers called the
Writer’s Report http://www.autobyografy.com/p/FPRL/Homepage.php
that is like a career starter for those looking to start a career
in writing. It contains step-by-step information on how to get
started in the business, finding agents and managers, handling
and overcoming rejection, putting together a cover letter, resume
or portfolio, do's and don'ts, techniques, understanding
contracts and agreements, how-to's, and writing industry
evaluation.

Newsletters with Opportunities - There are two newsletters for
freelance writers. One is for writers who like to write poems,
Tribute To A Poet Newsletter
http://www.autobyografy.com/p/Home/Newsletters.html, and the
other is for writers who want to write for a variety of national
media like magazines, newspapers, greeting cards, and so forth,
The Dime Times Newsletter
http://www.autobyografy.com/p/Home/Newsletters.html. Both offer
paid opportunities.

Get Published - Writers can get their manuscripts published into
an eBook and sell via their bookstore, Imist Books
http://www.autobyografy.com/p/Fabian_Mall/Homepage.php.
I also noticed that they provide several marketing tools like
featured writer spots, press releases, book reviews,
self-publishing articles, etc.

The Autobyografy site http://www.autobyografy.com offers a whole
lot more for other talents as well like dancers, photographers,
actors, and so forth. Be prepared to browse for a while, the site
is extensive. In addition, they offer a lot of freebies too.
It's all about what you want!
