testimonials from some of our members:
“For any writer who is keen to build up their career and find markets for their work a subscription to
Writethismoment.net could really be invaluable. Each regular update contains a wide range of possibilities,
with details of magazines and publishers in search of writers and material. And just one acceptance or
commission should cover the cost of the very reasonable subscription. I cannot recommend the services
and professionalism of Writethismoment.net highly enough.” – Neil Somerville, Writer
“I find the jobs board is well worth the subscription fee. I have found that the information on places that pay
for fillers and letters alone more than pay for my subscription. I am looking at expanding my writing
business into new areas soon and the Jobs Board at Writethismoment.net will be my first port of call to find
the best markets to target.” – Jane Redfern Jones, Writer and Publisher
“Just thought you might like to know how useful Writethismoment.net is! I received my subscription
confirmation, entered the jobs page, saw the top one posted there - Foreign Policy Writers Wanted - which
incredibly was right up my street! I ran off a quick email to their editor - and heard back 10 minutes later
with a thumbs up...! Great! Your site really is a better and more useful site for freelancers than many others
I know.” – Peter Glover, Freelance Writer and daily political blog writer
“The new jobs board is great and growing every day. I love the variety of work on offer.” – Sandy Mather,
UK Freelance Writer/NLP Practitioner
“When I joined writethismoment.net and saw the varied postings, I was relieved that some of the donkey
work would no longer be necessary! Carol and Mark provide a professional and efficient service-but
always with a personal touch. In the past year I have found work as a writing tutor, been commissioned to
write a biography and have just received a letter from the publisher who has read (and liked!) three
chapters of my first novel. Now they have asked for the full manuscript. WTM has given me the incentive
to keep looking, keep trying and keep writing. Thanks writethismoment.net - I'm staying with you!” -
Margaret Paxton, Writer
We look forward to you joining us and we wish you all the best in your life as a writer. If you have any
questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
