Writers wanted at three online freelance markets


Ready for more ways to sell your writing?

Let’s look at a couple of unusual paying markets for freelance writers. These are online markets that claim to be hiring freelancers who want to make money. If anyone knows anything about these writers’ markets, please drop a comment here and let us know.

Trazzler.com says they’re looking for writers to write articles, short articles about unusual travel experiences. Like micro-stories. Bam! Here’s their blurb, the word trip refers to an article:

Every month we hire at least 10 freelance writers to write blocks of trips about regional weekend destinations, more far-flung locales, or an “obsessions” beat that spans the globe (we love obsessions). For these gigs, we pay $250 for 10 trips or $500 for 20 trips (a trip should be between 65-150 words long).

…we also hire Community Managers or Content Wranglers from our freelancer and contest winner pool for more regular, part-time monthly positions that pay $1000 per month. These jobs can entail writing trip pages, editing user submissions, and also helping us to “wrangle” high-quality existing content from our partners into the unique Trazzler style and format.

Granny used to advise, “If it sounds too good to be true”…so I’d advise approaching with due prudence.
