In 2015 we published an article called 1129+ places That Pay For Your Writing. A year and a half later, this is still one of our most popular articles, so we decided to put together a new and improved version for our readers with lists that are a bit more current.

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.
