Are you looking for part time writing jobs? Full time writing jobs can be incredibly demanding and if you work for a newspaper or a publisher then you can quickly burn yourself out working long hours under enormous stress – for little money. Part time jobs however can be a much better deal. Not only will you have a lot less stress but you will probably earn much more. With the economy still in an all time low, many employers are reluctant to employ new full time staff and currently the part time job market is great.
So, where do you find employment as a part time writer? Well, the answer is to freelance online. If you are not familiar with freelancing as a writer then you will be by the opportunities out there. There are quite literally thousands of people who employ writers on a daily basis to write anything from novels to transcripts to screenplays and even write emails for them.
By doing online writing jobs you can have complete flexibility in terms of your work hours. The vast majority of your work will be with online publications and much of it will be from international clients. All webmasters have a constant need for fresh content for their websites and as a freelance writer you will work with website owners and webmasters to create this content. You can also work on eBooks, reports and even writing scripts for online video and audio.
All part time work for writers is not online though. A growing number of “real” companies are turning to freelance writers to fulfill the needs that would otherwise be met by a permanent staff member. The flexibility and the advantages of not having to employ someone permanently means that it makes a lot of sense financially and these companies often pay quite well. Building relationships with these types of employers means that you can have a number of employers that use you periodically and after a few months you can have a strong employer base that can provide you with a lot of work for a long time.
Much the savings that companies have of net employing someone full time gets passed on to you as the writer. Some part time writing jobs pay as much as $100 for a 500 word article. If you have any specialized knowledge you can earn even more and writing only a few of these articles a week can quickly add up to a great income that can top even a good full time salary.
