Introduction:The life of a freelance writer isn't exactly "normal" so where they work isn't either. With only a few exceptions, there aren't many businesses, organizations or individuals who doesn't need someone to write something for them. Instead of looking to into the "everyday" places freelance writers go for gigs, try something odd.
Nursing homes are odd places freelance writers find work. Not only can the freelance writer do advertising, press kits and the like for a nursing home, they can also write monthly newsletters, employee training manuals and such. Of course, the families of the residents may be in the market for a freelancer writer to write the memoirs of their loved ones.
Real estate agencies are odd places freelance writers find work. Many real estate brokers and real estate agents do not have the time to write detailed descriptions of the homes they are selling. Real estate agencies are an excellent place to pitch a "magalog" - a catalog (in this case, of houses) that has the look and feel of a a magazine.
Animal shelters and rescues are odd places for freelance writers to find work. Not only can you write press kits, grants, newsletters and other needed material, a freelance writer can also write descriptions of the animals needing homes for publication in newspapers and online. Training manuals for both employees and volunteers are also needed at animal shelters and rescues.
Chambers of Commerce are odd places freelance writers find work. Speeches, descriptions of business and non-profit organizations in the area are always needed. Press kits, newsletters and other advertising are also needed. Of course, they will be needing their website updated on a regular basis.
Community centers are odd places freelance writers find work. Newsletters, grants and full press kits are needed to promote their work. Freelance writers can also teach writer's workshops and seminars in community centers. Advertising is key for the community centers to stay open and, if advertising is your thing, you can have work lined up for a long time.
Freelance writers are creative, no matter what their specific niche may be. They are also creative when it comes time to find work. Freelance writers understand that the written word is always in demand and they are ready to meet that demand.
Thanks for the list of odd places for freelance writers to find work. H5
I really like the idea of providing services to an animal shelter, and it never occurred to me before. Thanks for the great idea!
