Wow Alex this is an amazing list of opportunities. Now I really feel lazy and a bit intimidated as I see everything out there. Maybe I will just creep on some of the sites. Thank you for organizing everything for some of us who need extra help.
What awesome opportunities! Thanks for sharing. :)
Thanks so much for compiling and sharing this list. Have a great week!
Great list, bookmarked!
I remember the day when it was so difficult to find lists like these. All these opportunities are reasons to never give up.
I've checked out a few in the past, I've tried the whole non fiction thing and writing articles, bang head against the wall worthy lol
Good to know. I'll Bookmark this post.
Thanks, guys! Hope the list helps.
There really are a lot of opportunities out there! This list could definitely come in handy. I'm sure I'll revisit it a lot.
This wonderful! You have done all the work of gathering just what we need.
Have a wonderfully creative week.
What a treasure trove. Thanks for sharing.
Hi Alex - great ideas here ... and Patsy Collins in the UK is always putting up competitions to enter ... and if you get through earn a bit of cash .. prizes vary.
I inadvertently went to her blog at this page - could help: http://patsy-collins.blogspot.co.uk/2014/08/need-some-help.html
You guys are hot!
Another great resource! thanks Alex. (Or is this just more to feel insecure about? So many options to choose from!)
Oh wow. What a list!
Holy crap! What a list! And yet another one of your articles I'm going to have to cross reference in the future. haha
Awesome list, Alex.
Thank you so much for sharing these great resources. I was pondering whether of not to give freelancing another go:)
Thumbs up! Bookmarked.
Thanks for sharing this, Alex.
Great links, Alex. Since Duotrope became paid, there are 2 others I found that are better. Please check out and add:
Thanks, Lexa - I will!
This is a handy list to have, at muchly
Playing catchup, as you can see, Alex. Great list! Right now I have blinders on. I'm sticking to my blog posts and memoir writing. And me being me, I'm following my own roadmap! I'd love to get rich on my memoir ~ Haha ~ but right now the only thing that matters is telling my northern story. There's so much more to the story than I ever imagined, but I will manage it all in the end! Happy weekend to you.
This is a fantastic list, thank you, so much!!!
