This New Publication Pay $1+ Per Word

OneZero is a new Medium publication about technology and science. Their senior editor is seeking pitches for future-facing science stories. She is especially interested in “big ideas in biotech, genetic engineering, climate science, and all the weird stuff in between that’ll shape the next 10, 20, 50 years.”

According to one payment report, they paid $1.25 per word for a 3,200-word feature. The editor says the payment rates but they pay “very competitively.”

They are part of a growing number of publications produced by Medium that seem to pay competitive rates of around $1 per word, for much of the writing they publish. Other such sites include Gay Magazine, and FFWD.

Keep in mind – and this is very important – that you need to submit a quality pitch. These are professional opportunities. If you have any doubt at all about how to approach the editors of these publications, please read this first.
