There are... but its mostly competitive. Try checking out a copy of the Writer's Market 2009. Its a wonderful guide for freelance opportunities.

As someone who has freelanced for many years, I'm telling you the market is really slow right now. Lots of magazines are going under or are just laying off staff. I haven't had a paying gig in awhile and I used to have plenty.

Feel free to throw your hat into the ring, but just know that the business-- like many others right now--- kind of sucks.

Welcome to the Real World she said to me, condescendingly, take a seat. Take your life; plot it out in black and white.
