I receive these writing gigs in my email almost every day. So I thought, wouldn’t it be better to share? So from now on, When I receive them, I’ll share with you. See below.
Here are seven blogs and websites that accept submissions/pitches directly from writers — and pay up to $50, and sometimes more, for the writing they publish.
We’ve researched payment rates to give you an idea of what to expect from each publisher, though you may still need to negotiate payment.
Before sending a proposal or an article, be sure to carefully study the publication and tailor your pitch to their specific needs. This will go a long way to ensuring success.
