    Question What are the best places for a beginning content writer to find projects?

    I have taken the plunge and started freelance writing. I am looking for projects that have to deal with writing articles, either for websites or for distribution. The length varies, but is in the range of 300-700 words.

    I have gotten one project so far, from DP. However, I want to start charging at least $.02 per word and at that rate DP doesn't yield too much work. Where are some good places I can go to both offer my services and bid on projects; places that will not shun you if you charge over $.01 per word?

    I am a native English speaker and, as you can see, understand a thing or two about grammar. Although I am more of a general writer and do not have an area where I am a deep specialist, I do have certain subjects that I am fairly experienced in. Regardless, I can do some research and turn out an article that is more than basic if it is a subject that I am not that well versed in.

    So, what do you think; is there a market for a writer with skills and prices like mine?

    pfm27,
    What's your country of citizenship? If U.S., send me a PM and I can turn you on to some gigs that pay at or above your desired rate.
    Cheers,
    James

    @Shenron: Thanks for the invite, I have been planning to.

    @javanx3d: I am American. You will be getting a pm from me.

    I currently don't have a website; that is something I definitely need to create in order to present a more professional image.

    Thanks for the advice.

    Oh, and by the way, what is the deal with the NetBucks thing. What do you do with them?

    I know this probably warrants a new thread, but hopefully no one will mind me asking this here.

    Thanks for any information.

    Freelancing is great technique to earn money. Freelancing puts your life in free style. With this you need to be very efficient and quick in replying and searching for the work. There are many online websites/portals available that facilitate in finding writing work, i.e. vworker.com, freelancer.com, guru.com, scriptlance.coand desk.com.

    You need to create very descriptive profile and portfolio for getting the work and it depends a lot on your communication skills as well. Keep your client happy for getting more work and gain reputation .
