The workplace effects from COVID did writers a huge favor. They normalized remote work.

Since writing is one of the best jobs that can be done remotely, the corporate world is now filled with available, full-time remote writing jobs.

Awesome, right?

Below are a few of the best career websites where to find remote writing jobs that work for you.


*Freelance or Full-Time*

So disclaimer here: FlexJobs does cost money, but it’s minimal. In fact, it’s so minimal that I continued paying for this platform even while going through unemployment (about $40 every three months, or $60 for one year). FlexJobs was around well before remote jobs were popular. The platform posts some really high-quality stuff. I’ve applied to jobs I found here from companies like Oracle, Vox, and Slack.


*Freelance or Full-Time*

We’ve all heard of LinkedIn, write? (See what I did there?) Well, this social media powerhouse of professional networking has also turned into a gold mine for finding remote writing jobs. Simply type “copywriter” or “writer” or “content writer” into the search field, and “remote” into the location field, and voila!


*Freelance or Full-Time*

MediaBistro goes back about two decades. They used to be an online hub for news about the world of news, media, and publishing. However, they’ve now become a great place for creatives from all fields to find full-time and freelance work, including writers. I use MediaBistro as my back-up to LinkedIn and FlexJobs.


*Freelance Only*

If you’re looking strictly for freelance work but want your pay to be more than Fiverr, Upwork is a great compromise! You can set your own hourly rate, or “bid” on existing jobs that are seeking freelance help. Use Upwork to actively find work, or allow the work to find you. This is also a great platform for beginning writers who are actively building their portfolios to eventually land full-time writing jobs.
