And a different type of list…

One of the resources I use to find paying outlets are rates guides. These resources collect input from writers sharing how much they were paid by certain publications. In addition to finding out how much a site pays, these databases are also a great way to identify places you may want submit your writing.

My two favorites are:

Who Pays Writers?  – Browse by latest entry or publication (over 850 paying publications included!).


Contently’s Rates Database – Filter results by date and rate, or search by publication name across hundreds of publications.
