Jobs for Writers: IWOSC Jobline, Writing Work Websites

Jobline, a service that matches writers and employers, is a profitable benefit of IWOSC membership.

Members: It pays to belong to IWOSC. Prospective employers have come to respect IWOSC as a reliable source to meet their writing, editing, proofreading, and photographic needs.

Here’s how it works:

  1. The IWOSC Jobline Coordinator qualifies the lead and works with the potential employer to develop a job posting.
  2. Within 24 hours, IWOSC will send out the lead to its current members.
  3. Members email the Jobline Coordinator to find out contact information for the position.
  4. Members send a brief statement and/or resume to the potential employer.
  5. If you receive a job or assignment as a result of a Jobline lead, please let us know.

If you have questions, contact our President, Flo Selfman: floself - at - aol -dot - com.

Prospective employers: IWOSC’s FREE Jobline service can help you meet your temporary or permanent needs for skilled professional writers, editors, proofreaders and photographers.

Here’s how the free service works:

  1. Send a brief description of your need(s) to Flo Selfman (floself - at - aol -dot - com).
  2. IWOSC’s Jobline coordinator will work with you to develop a Jobline lead, including job description, position criteria, payment, etc.
  3. IWOSC will distribute the lead to nearly 300 qualified members.
  4. IWOSC members who are interested in the position and meet the criteria will send a brief statement and/or a resume, responding directly to you by email.
