  1. Lailanie

    I’m still recovering from a heartbreak related to some job posting with very low rates I’ve found in our freelance writers’ community group. My heart bleeds whenever I see fellow writers settling for less, or accepting low rates coz they don’t know other ways to find high-paying job offers or other means than content mills with questionable low rates.

    I found this article informative and very promising, especially for writers on this niche.
    Thank you, Kathie and Carol, for another gem. I actually shared this with the group.


    • Carol Tice

      Thanks for sharing, Lailanie!

  2. Godwins Okeyo

  3. Rohit


    Thank you for sharing this wonderful list.

    I have been searching for this for a long time and you provided it right here. It is a great help for sure. Digital marketing has great potential for marketing to a large audience available, right from your desk. It also includes a huge scope of earning at the same time.

  4. Rewari Haryana

    That’s a great list of websites for writers. Thank you for all the research and hard work you put into it.

    I’ve already gotten a few paid gigs out of these. Thanks.

  5. Helen Becker

    I was thrilled when, quite by accident, I found Make A Living Writing! I wrote for a newspaper and lifestyle magazine several years ago, so this is my second try at Freelance writing at a time when all the rules have changed, and I need all the help and advice I can get. I especially need to connect with the lists of people and companies, even though I am not a business minded person – I can learn quite quickly if necessary. My heart lies with what could be described as frivolous – the Arts, reviewing music, films, writing about fashion. I will have to adapt quite quickly, I think!

    • Make A Living Writing

      Welcome back to the world of freelance! I think you’ll find the tutorials and community in the Freelance Writers Den very helpful as you restart your journey.

  6. Arpit Agarwal

    Thanks for sharing that Small Business Trends blog,
    never heard about that!

    Will apply for it.

  7. Rose

    Hi, thank you so much for this list. I have a question, are these jobs only avaliable for people who live in the US or can someone from another country apply ?

    • Angie Mansfield

      Hi, Rose –

      Many publications don’t care where you’re based, as long as you write well and pitch an idea that appeals to their audience, whoever that may be.

  8. Victor Eagle

    Thanks a lot for this post. It’s going to be a great help

  9. isuru mahesh

    Hello there, many thanks for this rundown. I have an inquiry, are these positions just avaliable for individuals who live in the US or would somebody from another nation be able to apply ?

    • Carol Tice

      You’d have to check with them, Isuru, but my general experience is they don’t care where you are if you have great information for their readers.

Trade Magazines: 22 Niche Pubs That Pay Writers Up to $2,000

22 Trade Magazines That Pay Up to $2,000.

Want to write for trade magazines?

The idea probably conjures up images of your byline in glossy, newsstand publications.

But there’s another type of publication that many freelance writers overlook, trade magazines, and the pay rate can be on par with high-profile, consumer mags.

Writers who’ve gotten in with trade magazines often find that the market is stable and can provide opportunities for regular work.

And because trade magazines cover virtually every major industry (along with some you may never even have heard of), there’s a good chance you’ll be able to find ones that focus on topics you’d like to write about.

TIP: Before pitching any of these trade magazines, make sure you study the publication and read the writer’s guidelines (when available), so you get a strong grasp of the kind of content they publish.

In many cases, you can read recent articles on the magazine’s website or request a sample copy. Some trade pubs are highly specialized, so you need to make sure your pitch is relevant.

In this post, we’re going to introduce you to 22 trade magazines that pay up to $2,000 per assignment.
