Jobs for Writers on pw.org
PW has a good job listing page just for writers. It’s interesting to browse through whether you’re actively looking for a job, or just want to see what sorts of jobs writers can have!
We also a post did a post a while ago where former English majors wrote in and told us what there jobs are now. You can read that here or on our Writing Advice page under “Education and Careers”.

Thanks yeahwriters! Also, for writers looking to get their work published, take a look through our Literary Magazine Database to find contact info for over a thousand literary magazines.
