I don't believe it's "relatively strong" for contractors whatsoever.

I think it's dead in both FT permanent and in contracting jobs. If there is any job available at all, however, it'll probably be on a contract status.

Working remotely for NYC clients is a great idea.

You might see multiple writing jobs on the national job boards for the Triangle area, but the reality is that many contracting agencies are recruiting for the same position. So what looks like four or five jobs is really only one.

Don't really have any local clients, so I stand corrected!

To the OP - whatever you do, DO NOT burn bridges with anyone in NYC or elsewhere. The Triangle is a wonderful area to live in; it's an absolutely terrible area to try to start one's life over again in.

Oxford University Press has an office here, and there's also Craigslist.

Oxford University Press had a bunch of layoffs not long ago.

You could also try RTI International. I don't know if they have anything available now, but they sometimes have editing jobs.
