7 creative ideas for finding freelance work and clients during the pandemic

  • Over the past few weeks, I've swung between feeling very lucky to be a freelance writer and panicking about what my future holds.
  • On the one hand, we can't get laid off and lose all our work in one fell swoop, and are generally accustomed to some ups and downs in our income.
  • On the other hand, we have no promise of continued work from any of our clients (who are also impacted by the pandemic) and aren't usually supported as well by the structures that help the traditionally employed, like unemployment benefits or paid sick leave.
  • Plus, if you've lost work, you've lost work " and that sucks.
  • Abbey Woodcock, who runs a coworking space and freelance community, The Freelance Co-op, and has connected with over 2,000 freelancers about their experiences since the pandemic started, said that while the initial reaction was largely panic and fear, she's now seeing the incredible resilience of the freelance community.
