The Best Source for Freelance Writing Jobs

This post was guest blogged by Hafshah, a freelance writer.

Working as a freelance writer is normal in USA, UK and Australia. However, freelance writing in Malaysia is still in its infant stage. However, it is slowly picking up here judging by the numerous freelance websites available on the net nowadays.

Being a freelance writer myself, the main source of getting freelance writing jobs is through the net. There are a few Websites available if you want to search for freelance writing jobs:

Malaysian Websites:

International Websites:

The newspaper is also another source of searching for freelance writing jobs. However, you need to buy several types of newspapers if you prefer this source of getting freelance writing jobs. Magazines is another source of getting writing jobs but the jobs advertised in magazines are not that many compared to those in the newspapers. Beware of scam writing jobs. Check out the company name from our list of scam companies in Malaysia.

Another way of getting freelance writing jobs is to call up the firms or if you don’t have the time, to send your resume to the companies which you think would want freelancers. Last but not least, is through word of mouth - Viral Marketing. If your networking is good, you can get freelance writing jobs through your friends.

Do you have any better sources for Freelance Writing Jobs to recommend?

I am looking for writers for my monthly event industry based magazine. The inaugural issue will be in March.
its focus is more on the back end of an event (planning, suppliers, F&B, security, logistic, etc) and a bit on event coverage. The writers should also be able to conduct high profile interviews and have analytical perspective on the subject matter. Resourceful is another keyword here. Please email me you profile at I need to know your fee for 1000 words. Thanks!

Hey guys,

I’m looking for freelance writers for a mobile tech inclined website. Your job (should you want it) will involve writing about current mobile technologies/ the people who use/benefit/love mobile technologies, current trends/ issues and success stories pertaining to mobile technology.

the pay isn’t much and its basically a play on honorary/contributor but it’s okay if you want to exercise penmanship and stuff.

Small on budget. Big on viewers.

I write on tourism,culture and cuisine for regional destinations.I currently write on regular basis for two magazines that promote these topics.But I’m still game to write for more.I’m good on these topics as I travel and at the same time am into the culture and cuisine of places that I have the good fortune of visiting.So if there’s any organisation out there who want a truly good account of such topics,do contact me.
