How about a little more info? What kind of writing—i.e., creative, journalistic, technical, Web content? What are your qualifications and experience? Have you freelanced previously? Do you live in a city or a small town? This and other info might help us answer your question.

Small town, but decent proximity to a city. Any kind of writing, but I prefer creative. Technically I don’t have any particular “qualifications” other than that’s just what I do. I majored in journalism in college, but dropped out at the end of my sophomore year.

Usually there are Web-based job boards. You could also do a brochure describing your services and take it around to local businesses.

Send out email to all of your colleagues, ex-colleagues and acquaintences advertising your services.

Craigslist has a writing/editing section in the job listings.

It’s under “jobs” on my local site. Thanks for the tip, @sarahsugs!
