Teen Ink — Supported by the nonprofit Young Authors Foundation, Teen Ink is the twenty-five-year veteran in the fostering-teen-writers game. The magazine, book series, and website are devoted entirely to writing, art, and photos by teens. Each issue features one short story about the teen experience, usually from a known young adult author. Teens drawn to the short story form can also submit their work for consideration in an annual issue that features a story written by a teen for teens.
In November, would-be novelists the world over attempt to write a 50,word or more, if they can do it book in thirty days. For teens with pressing homework demands, the Young Writers Program might be a better fit, as it allows authors to set their own word-count goal to meet before the month is out.
Tumblr — The blogging platform is of course a wonderful place for self-expression, but it also doubles as a go-to for young literary enthusiasts, bookworms, and those in need of some writing motivation. Thank You! The perfect book picks are on their way. Feeling a bit disheartened about freelance writing right now I guess. I have followed all the guidelines about marketing and I have some clips that are good quality. It can take an entire day to send pitches, and you might end up with no replies.
Finding a long-term client that pays well is remarkably difficult. I am not one to shy away from hard work and I know I am a good writer. But something tells me that connections mean more than good pitches. Thanks for your response Carol. I will certainly have a look at the articles you have linked to. As an aside, do you recommend pitching to the websites of globally popular newspapers such as The Guardian? I reckon the pay would be great.
I think most websites are less competitive to get into than the top print magazines, so maybe give some of these markets a try! I know what you mean about the Listverse thing. Ended up publishing it on my own website instead for a couple of hundred views instead. Was a shame because it was IMO a damn good article I put together. Linked to it in my name here. Repeat work speeds up the whole process because the pitching is quicker and once the client becomes more comfortable, you get some leeway.
Pick a topic you can talk about and stick to it to cement yourself as a thought leader in the industry. This way you can pitch the same piece of content to multiple publishers in that niche. Mainly because it goes against my entire ethos — I like to write about things I am interested in.
These vary from soccer to food to travel to self-development. Choosing just one area to write about would not only be extremely difficult for me, but also feel wrong. You have to figure out what the trends are in a new niche, who the experts are, what the best sources of data are for good research studies. Specializing drives better earnings. Thanks for the helpful response; I understand what you are saying to me.
I need to be providing solutions with my writing to businesses in one or more strictly defined niches. Perhaps I should leave the more generic writing topics to my spare time. I think part of my reluctance to focus in on a couple of trendy or in-demand subjects is that I am a terribly indecisive person. But for now, maybe I should focus on e-mailing businesses in certain industries.
My travel expertise is a bit too niche — I only really know about Thailand, given that I live here. And any travel blogger will tell you that there are more articles on Thailand than people travelling there. Perhaps the next logical step is to get in contact with businesses. I wrote a landing page for a recruitment consultant recently and I enjoyed it thoroughly. I received great feedback too. But the question is, do I focus on writing landing pages for recruiters now or do I focus on writing landing pages for all kinds of websites?
I have issues with choosing a target market to focus on. Need to get in the right frame of mind again, and I will. Thank you for your reminders on my mails, they are gladly there, on my side…. Blessings Therese. You always have to be a good writer to get a handsome amount.
Here, I would tell you something else. I am a product reviewer and thus, I used to work on an online platform as a freelancer. That could be a good idea but it takes a lot of time and money too. The truth is that many popular blogs have a hard time finding enough quality content to keep their editorial calendar full.
Frankly, right now I have more writing opportunities than I can keep up with and I turn away new opportunities regularly. The key is to get added as a regular contributor rather than making your living as a guest poster. Sure, you may start on a guest post basis, but try to get a commitment for a regular contribution — once per week for example. As far as ideas? Make a Living Writing.
