A member of the expat group I'm in posted a humongous list of remote jobs.
Sites similar to Fiverr and online teaching gigs, things like that.
Some of the sites are free, some are paid, and some are a combination (pay for greater access, pay to post a gig, etc)
The idea for you, the budding writer/artist, would be to join one of the 58 sites and see if you can attract any work for whatever price you want to set.
I live overseas, so this is the sort of thing I look for when I want to make a little extra on the side, or to find artists for my book projects. Click here for the list.
