Some are general sites while others specialize. Have personally verified that all the links work and that the sites are in business. However, I suggest go through the list one site at a time to verify the same. Open the site, check whether they are accepting writers and note their requirements. When you have a list of about 10 that you prefer, start applying.

General Freelance Sites
5. Craigs List
9. Freelance Switch (now part of Evanto)
10. Journalism Jobs
12. Freelance SourceThis is for those who want work but not good at bidding. At Freelance Source, you simply choose a membership plan and pay a refundable membership fees. They say, the payment is to ensure that only serious people sign up. Check it and start earning today.
That I have explained numbers 1-12 doesn't make the sites more special. I just did. So, don't be surprised if you end up making nothing more from the sites below. I have also linked every site to the 'how it works' or 'about us' section. Enjoy!
Academic Writing Sites
29. Best Term Paper
32. Prof Essays.com
67. Content Row
70. Work At Home
73. Interact Media

I know the above list is not conclusive. So, if there is any site you know of which you believe should make it to the list, don't hesitate to share it via the comment box. I'll endeavor to update the site and remove the one that no longer work or accept writers.
As at the time of publishing this list however, all the sites are working and accepting writers. You may also want to run a blog of your own to complement your income from freelance writing. When that time comes, just jump to Blogging Tips. Good luck in all you do.
