If you need copy in a hurry and you don't have titles in mind already, then Constant Content might be worth a look. While you can still order copy to spec from their pool of writers, the most useful feature is the ability to buy or license pre-written articles. I've found it to be more expensive than TB, but if you're stuck for copy it's worth a look.

As others have said, Craigslist is worth the effort. I've had published authors and journalists apply for positions on there, but some of the rates you get quoted are insane. 200 for an article? I think not!

Don't overlook Gumtree either. You can find some fairly decent writers there and for some reason they tend to be cheaper than those on Craigslist.

I've used the ProBlogger job board in the past, which has been hit or miss. Another one that's well worth a look is the Freelance Switch marketplace, which tends to be of quite high standard.

I have used odesk in the past and it has been a very positive experience, received well written interesting ontheme content within a reasonable time frame and great price. However it depends on who you hire of course.

@littleman: thanks!

Found this decent list of services on Quora... some I haven't heard of, others have already been mentioned in this thread. It's worth keeping an eye on as more answers are added.

has anyone considered targeting, say, English/Journalism Majors, in local colleges?

yeah, done that and fairly cheap (not just journalism majors, depending on your subject you can get literate intelligent articles on almost any subject. sometimes just for the experience/byline credit) BUT they can be incredibly bad at delivery dates. Don't ever expect a student to deliver by 8am every weekday morning, its not going to happen!

I know some of you will know the organisation and owners, and I use purecontent.com for almost all of my stuff.

I was looking at purecontent.com a while back.  From the outside they looked expensive.  Are they?

in my view not for the service you get. They're primarily first language writers and its checked for duplication, goes through editorial and they redo it if its cruddy quality, so for me the extra charge means I don't have to worry much about it. Obviously if you want quick cheap spun stuff they're not your best bet....
