OK…I am ready to pump up the action. So, here’s a challenge for you all:

The first 10 people who share with me five new potential sources of jobs (clients you have, former clients, colleagues who work in companies with educational possibilities, etc.) receives a small gift and gets featured on the site…and I will post madly on my various lists. How’s that?

Here is a list of categories I have added to the section on expertise for writers…build from there:

Retrieving Passwords

Trust me…it’s been a password nightmare for me this week (and I drove poor Laura crazy…thank goodness she’s incredibly patient!)

Some of you have been writing to me about changing your passwords…or actually LOCATING them. Turns out, alas, that I cannot do that from my end. BUT…here are feedback and a  link to details that can help you get started.

  • Basically, verify that the user emails are correct then have them use the forgot password link. You cannot retrieve passwords as they’re stored as an encrypted string.
  • This article lists 7 completely different ways to reset your password.  Any one of them will work and do the job. Find the one that’s right for you and use that:

We will get through this all…I promise.

In the meantime, START POSTING GIGS…and let’s get some jobs from companies, etc., posted…let’s build this out!!!

Working on WEM

Hi all.

Hope the summer has been treating you well.

I’ve finally been able to dive into the website. Laura has helped me to navigate all aspects of WEM. I’m still learning. AND IT’S SO EXCITING.

Here’s what’s been going on (and what I’ve been thinking), along with what I hope you all will be able to do.

Site Changes

I’ve been fiddling with the site, adjusting here and there. You might notice! My goal is to launch a new website down the road. (If anybody out there wants to work on that with me, do reach out.)

The biggest changes are in the forms. I’ve added all sorts of writing categories to the writer list sign up (you might want to refresh your profile to add some of the newer categories), and additional fields in the job posting and community leads sections. You can now actually hyperlink a job (rather than just post the URL) and/or upload a job description.

Oh…and yes, I’ve been deleting thousands of SPAM emails. (If your name is Amoxicillin…sorry, you’ve been removed!)

Hustling through Outreach

I’ve reached out to colleagues, friends, peers, collaborators, etc., about the site, and have invited them to post job leads. My goal is for folks who hire to see that they can come to WEM FIRST (before posting wildly and randomly elsewhere) to find the best of the best education writers. It’s true! They can narrow their search right here. And not have to  to sift through lots and lots of resumes, profiles, writing samples. Don’t you agree?

So, please do the same. There are over 1200 of you! Even if each of you reached out to just one company or professional colleague, our job postings would be off the charts. I would love to get more than 10-15 new gigs a day (or maybe a week, to start?) that are unique to our site.

Writers List

Even though there are over 1200 folks registered, there are only about 250 of you on the writers list. You should add your credentials to it. I think we will get more people perusing that list. Don’t you want to be featured on it?


I want to make this a regular thing. Blog posts…I have some ideas for that, and will be starting soon. Would love to have many of you write posts, too. R u interested? Shoot me an e-mail…LET’S TAWK

How You Can Help

This will be a slow process…but you can help move it along. Here is a short list of how you can help for now:

  • Let me know what else you’d like on the site; maybe I can make that happen.
  • Get folks you know to post jobs (I know, I said that earlier…but it needs repeating)
  • Post community leads…THERE ARE OVER 1200 OF YOU. Let’s get that list super active.
  • Start talking to each other…respond to blog posts or listings…boast. Should I get a forum started?
  • If you unsubscribe, let me know why…maybe some improvements would keep you on board?

That’s where WEM is at for the moment….MOVING FORWARD!!!

More ideas blooming, great plans underway…stay with me for the journey!

Writer needed immediately for course development

Hi all…Newgen needs a writer ASAP (NOW TO BE EXACT) for a course on tolerance and dimensioning. It really needs a writer who is super knowledgeable on this topic…otherwise, it will be really tough (I know…I tried!). There is a bit of a tight deadline but if you know the content, you can easily catch up. There are writing guides, etc., so it’s very organized.

The person to contact is:

Damian McGarvey
Sales Director
Tell him Michele sent you. He’s really lovely as are the other members of the team. So please do reach out.

Official Transfer

Hello, Writing for the Education Market Community!

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted. Some of you are recent additions to the community and some, like Michele Israel, have been with me since it’s inception in 2008. You’ve seen her name and posts regularly.  Michele has been pretty much holding up this site for the last two+ years and I’m grateful. It’s been wonderful working with you all for so long, but I am unable to give WEM the attention it needs to be a strong community, and Michele has graciously agreed to take it over completely.

I’ll keep my Laura at Writing for The Education Market dot com email address for another couple of months and then that will be closed down. Please address all emails to Michele at Writing for The Education Market dot com from now on. We’ll be working together until we get the kinks worked out.

Happy writing!
Laura Coulter
