This Brand New Website Pays $500 to $800 Per Article

In 2019, there was a growing trend of new, high-quality websites that pay decent rates to freelance writers.

I’m hoping that in 2020, the trend will solidify and that writers interested in building a sustainable career will be able to have plenty of opportunities to write for high-quality publications.

Here’s one sign of hope: A brand new website, launched by Glitch, called glimmer, is launching in early 2020.

They plan to focus on “how technology impacts our culture, work, and world.”

They’re currently calling for pitches for feature articles, interviews, and analysis.

The pay is $500 to $800 for stories between 500 and 2,000 words.

According to their announcement:

We’re looking for stories on the frontlines of change. Glitch is proud to launch Glimmer, a new magazine highlighting unique stories about how technology informs the work of creators, from developers to DJs to designers. Glimmer will feature perspectives from the experts, but we will also highlight stories about the systemic limitations that prevent people from being heard by industry leaders.

Many of those speaking up are not being heard: the indie artist whose work is appropriated for a hateful meme. The social media user who is being harassed and told the terms of service can’t stop it. A video channel that is shut down without the option of appeal. The app user who doesn’t know how their data is being used and shared.
