http://www.virtualvocations.com

This site offers a comprehensive list of freelance/contractor gigs as well as remote employee positions. It includes all kinds of work, ranging from customer service reps to IT specialists and everything in between. It's $15/month. I signed up for just a month, but just in that time, I found several listings that produced a few repeat clients.

I am going through these links like a savage. I'm in the same position as Julianne, so all this info is quite beneficial.

SPJ is fantastic! I've kept my press credentials through them and other organizations. Every state has a press association, and I strongly recommend becoming a member. Many cities also have their own press clubs.

For copywriters, seek out a chapter of the American Advertising Federation or your city's advertising club. For photogs, check out Professional Photographers of America and the American Society of Media Photographers.

For graphic designers, I love the Society for News Design.

For copy editors, I also love American Copy Editors Society.

Here are two pretty comprehensive lists of organizations

http://www.journalismassociations.com/find-a-group/

I'm a member of many organizations, and the dues can be quite costly. But remember that dues are tax deductible.

For writing courses, the Poynter Institute has some great courses through it's News University:



There are some neat self-directed courses that are free of charge, I'm enrolled in a couple of those now, but think some of the paid ones would be worthwhile to take eventually.

I've taken classes from Poynter in the past and they were great. The Poynter Institute is VERY well respected in the field of journalism...it's old school, think more Peter Jennings or Cristianne Amanpour than most bloggers.

This is inspiring me to get off my ass, thanks guys. I'm trying to figure out how to best market myself and get started doing PR/copywriting, but the whole thing is just scary. :/
