"With Writerfind, I've gotten to work with very nice, sharp people from countries I haven't worked in before doing things I've not done before.

"There are a lot of jobs on the lists, even from this country, that I would never find out about otherwise. I always study those lists carefully because there are many good opportunities there.

"I have been contacted by other would-be writers through Writerfind, which has led to worthwhile projects and for that I am thankful for your service." Clifford Thurlow, UK.
"Since joining up with writerfind I have had so many jobs come my way I can barely keep up! I have joined so many other sites that usually saw me spending more hours writing proposals to secure "bids" to clients that never replied that I hardly had any time left to do the kind of writing that I love. Now my portfolio just continues to expand as I try my hand at all different forms of writing; from articles on a variety of topics, to advertising and website copy, newsletters and brochures, and the list goes on.
Writerfind makes getting suitable gigs so easy! I get direct contact with the clients who actually contact me back, and usually they will offer me the job!
I was talking to a fellow freelancer who was bemoaning the lack of work and said that she found she was making more money from taking photos. I found that so hard to believe and promptly recommended Writerfind to her. "Don't do that!" my Mum said. "Never reveal the secrets of your success". Of course I reassured her that there was plenty enough work for all of us and that I could confidently spread the word and still earn all I need to doing what I love best.
Thanks writerfind!" Lisa Mora, Australia
