Could I Freelance?
I don’t work in a writing environment. I’ve even blogged about how to make the transition into making money from my writing. Along with my Robert book and Mars, I’m thinking there has to be a way to submit short stories or articles to publications in order to generate some cash. I would hope that by getting published in these areas, they can be the basis for writing credentials I don’t have (except my college diploma).
I found two interesting sites called ehow and Suite101. Both of these will allow submission of article and publish them. Additionally, they do pay something. Of course I’m not thinking this would be any amount of money past $5 or $10 but it’s at least a start. I’ve thought about looking at what publications are ‘out there’ and working on some material to send them.
Additionally, my alma mater publishes a great literary magazine called Inkwell. I’ve gotten forms in the mail in the past years asking if I wanted to submit work and this time around I think I might just take them up on the offer. The reading period is from August first to November 30th, so I have plenty of time to get something for there.
Does anyone have a website or search that shows publications looking for submissions?
