Thursday, September 10 2009 Freelance & Full-Time Writing Jobs

A lot of the jobs seem to be moving into the full-time category as more organizations realize that they need writers for various ongoing projects. This is making freelance work just a little bit harder to find, but not that hard. If you are looking for work, why not send a note to an organization that is looking for full-time people? They obviously have projects and they may not want to wait on all of them until they have completed the hiring process.

When I was attending Lisgar Collegiate Institute in Ottawa they had a copy of the poem “In Flanders Fields” in the front hallway.  I thought this was a regular tribute until I stopped to read the fine print one day – the poet who wrote it had been a Lisgar student.  I thought that was kind of awesome.

Don’t forget to take your moment at 11:00 today to remember, wherever you are.
