7 Best Portfolio Websites for Freelance Writers

If you are a freelance writer, especially a newbie, you need portfolio websites. Clients want to see samples of your work to give them a feel of your writing style and to help them assess if you’re the person for the job. And even if you are not a newbie, you can never outgrow this very familiar line, “Could you send me some of your previous work?”

In fact, a few minutes before writing this, I applied for a writing position online, and one of the things I was asked to do was to send a few samples of my previously published work.

Creating an online freelance writing portfolio helps your career in ways you can’t imagine. It’s a great place to keep all of your best work, plus have a nice bio about yourself.

It’s definitely a lot easier to send samples to your clients when needed if you have a few published on these portfolio websites. Online portfolios give you that professional touch. Some have attractive templates that are easy to customize too.

Not sure of the best places to build a freelance writing portfolio? Now, that’s where I come in. Here are seven websites that provide you with easy, reliable and versatile features to keep all your previous writing work.
