My Favorite Freelance Writing Resources

58251_7227There are so many great sites, groups, etc. out there to help freelance writers new and old. I’ve definitely developed some favorites through trial and error. Since people often ask me, here’s a handy list of the ones I like:

Freelance Success: the forums, where writers freely share contacts and other key info, are worth the membership fee

Freelancers Union: for insurance info and other benefits

Hiveage: an online invoicing system that keeps track of your earnings

MediaBistro: super-useful media news like the comings and goings of editors, plus the best resource on pitching available — the How to Pitch section, available with an affordable membership fee

ProfNet: great way to find expert sources for stories

The Renegade Writer: one of the few writing-related blogs I read regularly, probably because it’s one of the few that offers advice that helps “advanced” freelancers as well as beginners
