I have recently joined up with Writer Access. They tend to pay on the lower side for projects, but, like other sites I’ve written about lately, they are a good way to fill in your income in-between bigger jobs. They pay on a sliding scale, which is posted on this page. There are various types of projects, including articles, web page writing and blogs.

Business owners go to Scripted with a project and Scripted finds the best writer for the job using their database.
