This post is a bit of an experiment. I thought it might be useful to provide a regular round up of writing or writing related jobs that come to my attention This is the first week and all the jobs I’ve found are not only in England, but in south east England – sorry about that – but I would like to reflect the international readership of this blog in future. And I’d love to know if you think a job section is helpful.
