»»»I am currently interested in articles about monetizing your blog, building blog traffic, seo tutorials, indie publishing, and book marketing.«««
Paid Write is dedicated to supporting the work of professional writers with insights, market trends, and solid, actionable advice so that our readers can earn money from home and build the self-employed writing life of their dreams. Your pitch should provide a clear benefit or takeaway for professional bloggers, freelancers, copywriters, or indie authors.
Queries should include a brief summary of your background and the details of your story idea. I will not open attachments. I also do not accept material that has been previously published elsewhere online.
Queries should be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name, article idea or outline, a short bio with up to two links, your PayPal email, your expected word count, any proposed sources or screenshots, and links to your best samples. Your subject line should read: Query: Your Article’s Headline. (Obviously, the headline itself will be variable.)
I make every effort to respond to each and every pitch but if you haven’t heard back within two weeks, please feel welcome to send your submission on to another publication. Do not take my failure to respond or my choice to pass on your idea as negative feedback. Chances are the decision had more to do with the editorial calendar than a lack of ability.
Review the website before you pitch. This will greatly improve your chances of pitching something useful to Paid Write’s readers.
Paid Write acquires First Electronic Rights and the right to archive and republish the article in any form, indefinitely. Payment is made upon publication in USD via PayPal. I pay $30 for articles and $10 for reprints.
When your article goes live, I encourage you to share it through your own social media and reply to any comments. This boosts traffic to your post, which helps your visibility as a freelancer and looks good to clients, should you use your article as a sample.
Thank you for your interest in having your work published here at Paid Write. I look forward to reading your ideas!
