18 Places To Start Your Freelance Writing GigProbably, freelance writing is the most lucrative side hustle right now.

Why do I say that?

With so many websites coming up, there is a constant demand for content creation.

This is where freelance writers come in. Freelance writers can utilize their skill to write for blogs, magazines, online publications, etc.

They can also be hired by some big websites or bloggers to be a staff writer for their websites. That can become a steady stream of income.

There are many places where you can look for good paying freelance writing gigs like Problogger.net, BloggingPro.com.

One thing you would have to be sure when you are a newbie is, your grammar and English have to be good when applying for the writing gigs, this being the most important requirement.

I am not a professional writer, but something that helps me to write is Grammarly. It does an excellent job of error proof (well, almost). It can be a huge help if you are just starting out as a freelance writer. Though it might not do a proofreading job like a real person, it does pretty for an app.

Here is a list of websites which accept freelance writers even if you are a beginner and they pay well. These websites are in different niches so choose the ones which might interest you and pitch the editors/follow the guidelines.
