How I Traded $5 Per Article for $1000 Per Article

By Caleb Kentai Growing, up, writing was always a fun affair. I could whip words into paragraphs at a pretty young age. I could crank up a blistering op-ed in high school, good enough to win me several writing competitions, and the admiration of my friends. In college, I was the go-to writer because I …

How I Went from Earning $40 an An Article to $400

By Shireen Hakim Writing should be fun. If you’re not having fun with a publication or editor, move on. It will pay off. I’m proof of that.
