    I was just wondering from those of you who participate in freelace writing if you've ever heard of Demand Studios? I was looking into applying and working for them. I just wanted to see what those of you on here had to say about them and if you knew of any other freelace writing places I could maybe apply to?

    Don't know about Demand... don't know a single published (and still living) writer... but I'd give your local papers, etc a try. If you have knowledge on a subject, and that subject happens to be of interest "right now" (IE with the egg recall someone who had chickens could write a nice little article on the alternatives to buying eggs)... maybe worth a call anyways.

    Depends on what you want to do. I would pass on Demand, after checking
    their website.

    As the talking Pineapple said, local newspapers are a good start. Again, it
    sort of depends on what you feel like writing about. Writers Market? (annual)
    The Market? (monthly)

    Either way...it probably won't make you rich. Ask me...

    Quote:Yeah, I'd check on how to spell freelance first.

    BTW, please don't take umbrage at this--I do a lot of editing and stuff like that is the first thing I look for--second is syntax.

    ETA: It sometimes gets me in trouble on these threads.
