About FFW

FundsforWriters is an online resource for writers. You can be a thirty-year veteran or a part-time wannabe, but here at FundsforWriters (FFW), we consider you a writer none-the-less. We emphasize finding money to make writing a realistic career. Of course, you’d write anyway. That’s the way of a writer.

Other websites provide guidance on how to write, how to query, how to format manuscripts, and so on. We give you direction on the funding streams. We focus on markets, competitions, awards, grants, publishers, agents, and jobs for your writing abilities, with motivation chucked in.

2. Content pruning/editing/author website manager

Content pruning seeks to eliminate or update non-performing content and duplicated pieces that have lost meaning or weigh down a site. The aim is to improve a site’s health, search, and SEO ranking.

Website managers write the metadata for webpages and blog entries: writing subject lines/ headlines, uploading pieces to CMS, providing quality, licensed images and videos, and engaging blog readers by sharing articles or access to some resources.

They also edit ebooks, webinar, courses, novels, manuscripts, and articles submitted by other writers.

To land assignments of these types, check out ReedsyScribophileScribendiServicescape, and

Other places to find editorial appointments are on professional editorial directories like Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP) and Editorial Freelancers Association (EFA).

6. Book designer/illustrator/composer

Your love for self-published works need not end with writing or editing, but can include illustrations! Remember those childhood illustrations from your own beloved early books and how they connected well with the stories?

Reedsy is an excellent platform to enjoy being a book illustrator. Other places are The Bookcover Designer where you can sell your custom-made book covers,, and Servicescape.

As a writer, sometimes it is best to throw stones at different birds. Other times it is best to use a single stone to chase after two birds. Whichever way, the opportunities above, when used well, can enhance your writing income and portfolios.
