Once you start getting good projects at these websites, you can start building your own portfolio (in form of a website) so that you can get additional profits in coming future.
#Poetry competitions: Poetry and writing competitions are always in one of those ways which can help you to earn quick money easily in a short time. There are a lot of competitions for writers which held on yearly basis.
I have myself participated in contests like Respond. Sadly I was not in the winners but still I have knowledge of all these competitions. One such other content is organized by Poetry Nation in which you can participate to win some good money prize.
The best thing about contests organized by poetry nation is they have a good number of winners like third prize is awarded to 100 participants, 20 runners up are chosen and one best poem is awarded with a grand prize of 2000$. So the probability of winning a prize is more then other contests here.
#Blogging: Blogging is one of the best option for writers to make money these days. Though you will surely require knowledge of other things like Search engine optimization (SEO), Digital marketing etc. at some times but still if you are a writer, Blogging is one great way for you to earn living.

#Proof reading: A lot of websites which have huge number of articles at their websites are hiring Proof readers permanently these days. If you have some good writing skills and you have good grammatical knowledge you can consider finding a job as a proof reader with help of LinkedIn or any other good job finding platform.
