I surf the Internet a lot for work, am on lots of lists, receive lots of alerts, and also get leads from friends and colleagues. Below are a few sites that I reference a fair amount. You can set up alerts with many of them. I will post additional ones as they come along. PLEASE ADD YOUR SOURCES IN THE COMMENTS SECTION!!!!

I also, like many of you, go straight to the publishers’ websites, as well as to organizations that I am drawn to. That’s crazy tedious searching, but it often pays off. This link (which I might have already provided) suggests tools that link you to a site for regular updates.

And, I’ve also been looking at RFP sites…even have landed gigs from those…I will generate a separate list for those in a few days.

Also think about educational media companies, ed tech companies, arts-centric organizations, companies looking for educational content writers…so many possibilities.

There are fee-based, member-only sites, like (which also posts job announcements for members…I got into a bit of hot water because I was posting from their list…oh, well…lessons learned).

A few hiring entities have posted jobs directly to the site. I WANT MORE OF THAT IN THE FUTURE!

Of course, nothing beats word of mouth and referrals!!

Sites to Peruse (you really have to narrow down the search terms here, but I do find a lot…I know it’s tedious to come across stuff…but I do) I also customize searches on Google, Indeed, Simply Hired, and Nexxt (again, it can be a pain, but I find lots of really interesting gigs there)

  1. Patrice Sherman is a megasite for job listings, but you can filter by key words and have alerts sent to your inbox. I’ve filtered by things like “curriculum writer,” “freelance writer,” “education writer,” etc. and have found some good paying gigs. Again, it’s a very inclusive site, so even if you filter you’ll probably end up with a lot of job listings you don’t want, but if you use it steadily it can be an excellent resource. And don’t overlook Evelyn B. Christiansen’s site, It’s not really a job site, but she lists nonfiction publishers and book packagers along with contact info. I know a lot of people use her site to get started. It has been very helpful to me over the years.
