Default I need a job

Hello, mums.

I have been doing academic writing online for 6 years now. I am familiar with all referencing styles (APA, MLA, Havard, Chicago/Turbian). I have also done online tutoring as well as English-Swahili translation jobs. I just woke up to find my recent writing mill account locked without explanation, hence, I'm utterly jobless. I am open to doing any legit income-generating gig online. Kindly give your suggestions and references.

Thanks beforehand.

You will find some writing opportunities posted on this forum. You may want to check out freelance type sites like Upwork too.

Yeah, freelancing can be very competitive. Are you focused mainly on writing or are you open to other things?

I'm not constraining myself to writing only. I'm open to anything.

How much are you charging per word? I might have some work available. Do you have writing samples?

Default Charges

I would really appreciate if you send some work my way.

Usually I charge in cpp (cost per page)--a double spaced page or 300 words at $10.

Freelancer doesn't ever jobless. You have much experience to start your own business. Experience does matter nowadays. You can find job very easily.

Get on Upwork. Private clients pay more than writing mills, anyway.
