Writers Resources

There are many different websites, resources, and information for writers. I wanted to add all this information on the blog, but didn't want to fill it up with tons of post about writing. Upfront payment writing is a great way to make a significant amount of money. Not everyone is interested, so for those of you who are I hope this helps.

Note: please do your research first, as I have not worked on each one individually.

I apologize in advance if I have the details wrong, this is a lot of information to go through.

Upfront Payments / Get paid per article:

1. Iwriter - No resume or writing sample required

2. Article Teller - No resume or writing sample required

3. TextBroker - You need an ID to upload

4. HireWriters - Writing sample needed

5. Zery's - Have to apply to expertise categories, not much work when I log in.

6. Scripted - You have to apply to specialties, I see mainly guides to write.

19. Yahoo Contributor Network

20. Content BLVD

1. Funny Text - submit funny stories

2. On Text - They have guidelines

lovetoknow - I applied and never heard back

Digital journal - You will need to click on contribute, and then write a news sample article. 

contently - More for journalist, to get published and have writing on the internet
