Welcome to Wednesday Markets, a weekly listing of freelance writing gigs that pay at least 10 cents per word (many pay substantially more).
In order to get a listing on this site, an ad must state the rate of pay and pay no less than 10 cents per word.
Please note, however, that I cannot vouch for any company or entity on this list. It is important to research a company thoroughly before entering into a work arrangement.
Also, ads tend to expire quickly. If an ad is expired, take note of the company name in the right-hand column. In some cases, you may find that the company still needs writers and welcomes new writer applications.
This week’s list includes 3 freelance writing jobs paying anywhere from 10 to 20 cents per word.
For long-term opportunities, see my e-books for writers.
|Two to four posts per month for “employee-focused blog”||10 cents per word: $50 for articles of 500 words and $100 for articles of 1,000 words||PeopleJoy, Inc. (USA)|
|Writers to evaluate and write “objective reviews about various MLM companies, franchises, and other similar businesses.”||15 to 20 cents per word for articles of 2,500 to 3,000 words||Websmith Inc. (USA)|
|Contributors with “subject matter expertise in Earth Science, Biology, Physics, Astronomy, and Chemistry (and their sub-disciplines) to produce high-quality posts on recent discoveries/research, as well as guides and outlining content for infographics.”||Up to about 15 cents per word: $75 for posts of 500 to 1,250 words, $150 for standard articles of 1,000 to 2,500 words, and $350 for feature articles of 2,000 to 5,000 words||Essentially Simple (USA)|
Then check out my latest e-book, which lists 201 well-researched markets paying 10 to 15+ cents per word to freelance writers.
Why buy an e-book? Unlike ads, which are often focused on temporary needs and may expire quickly, the markets listed in my e-books for writers generally provide long-term opportunities that give you the chance to build relationships with editors and make on-going submissions to the publications you wish to write for.
