A place to share tips about writing, including how to get more gigs or jobs.
Rules about submitting links or self posts:
Share your experience, your questions, ask for feedback, complain about clients, rant about how hard it is to find clients, and other such posts are what this sub is for.
Self-promotion is ok, as long as the content you post is totally free, for all time. Link to a free e-book is fine, but link to an amazon e-book is not, for example.
"for hire" and "hiring" posts are acceptable for now, but not really what this sub is for. A more suitable sub for those kinds of posts is /r/forhire

Sites where you can find clients to write for
The list includes bidding sites as well as forums. In case of bidding sites, the sites take a part of your fee as commission. In case of forums, you can contact the client directly. The jobs in these sites are mostly 1-3 cents per word.
