A lot of publications work with freelancers but they either don’t run ads or aren’t running them constantly. Yet, they have an ongoing need for contributors and encourage those who think they’ll make a good fit to reach out. Here’s a list of those opportunities for personal finance writers.
If you’re interested in writing about investing, money management, retirement planning, estate planning, tax preparation, credit and debt, real estate, mortgages, frugal living, and lifestyle topics, Money Crashers may be the place for you. The website is hiring personal finance writers who can produce articles that are at least 3,000 words.
