Best High-Paying Freelance Gigs of the Week: August 5, 2019

Best High-Paying Freelance Gigs of the Week: August 5, 2019

Are you making the most of this week? Remember my moto: 12 in play keep the bills at bay. Make sure you’re sending out a dozen applications, pitches, or connections to potential clients per week. Here’s this week’s work-from-home freelance writing jobs to get you started. These gigs pay at least $50 a piece, offer a full-time salary, or pay more than $25 an hour. Each one is labeled as a remote job, virtual job or work-from-home job, which means you can do the work from anywhere.

Also, here are 30+ sites that pay writers for articles, so be sure to check that out.

Note: I don’t know anything about these positions other than what I post. I weed out the seedy looking ones, but it is your job to be diligent when applying. Also, please don’t message me with questions about the postings. If a link doesn’t work the posting has probably been taken down because the gig has been filled. If you have a gig for freelance writers that pays at least $50 a peice or over $25 an hour, please contact me and I will include your gig in next week’s post.

Editorial Policy:

Visual Arts News is the only magazine dedicated to contemporary visual art in Atlantic Canada. Although our focus is Atlantic Canadian art and artists, we also accept stories about national and international art and events that we believe are of interest to our readership.

Written in a clear and sophisticated style by some of the most talented arts writers in the region, Visual Arts News reflects the diversity of geographic and cultural communities in Atlantic Canada. The magazine is committed to providing balanced, engaging information about visual arts and artists. Our Editorial Committee is responsible for content selection, and the Editor assigns writers to each story. Although we are a non-profit organization supported in part by advertising, we recognize the importance of maintaining a clear separation between our independent editorial content and any advertising materials found in the magazine. Visual Arts News cannot guarantee editorial content or placement to advertisers.
