The best place for freelancers...
Writer Town is an exciting community for freelancers. This includes writers, bloggers, and other creative professionals.
We focus on unique ways to make money and helping people become more successful – either online or offline.
While we have a special interest in freelance writing, we also accept a wide range of topics on success.
We accept articles about:
Writing: Freelance writing tips and advice (best practices, making money as a writer, and more).
Online success: Becoming a better blogger, social media, various freelance work, and everything you can perform digitally.
Offline success: Creative ways to make money on the side, offline.
Topics should focus on increasing your overall success as a freelancer (income, productivity, motivation, general tips, and so on).
Fantastic reasons to join us…
Writers/editors: Claim some paid assignments
Grab some paid tasks throughout the month directly from our dashboard, similarly to TextBroker and Demand Media. These assignments are paid directly by us.
Average pay: Up to 4 cents per word, depending on the subject
Average weekly tasks available: Between 1 and 5
Payment schedule: We pay every Friday via PayPal
Paid tasks vary greatly in length (ranging from 30 words to over 500).
Over 3,200 external writing gigs at any given time
Perfect for writers and editors working from home.
Access over 3,200 gigs from many websites and job boards to ensure that you don’t miss the latest opportunity. Most of these are telecommuting gigs.
The main benefit here is convenience. We know that you are busy, so why spend hours scouring the internet one website at a time? This effectively allows you to see the latest work-from-home gigs from one single, convenient location.
Put it this way: You could easily land a lucrative gig within the next hour.
Most jobs can be done from home, each one neatly organized and frequently updated. There is always a new gig to look at. Always.
Also: See a job that you like but don’t have the time to apply right away? Simply “Save” it and view it later!
Note: Such jobs do not come straight from us, but rather from multiple sources.
Featured jobs (High-paying)
This is a special category that contains highly interesting, noteworthy writing/editing gigs. These typically offer higher pay and long-term potential.
Note: Such jobs do not come straight from us, but rather from multiple sources.
Hundreds of lucrative markets for writers (many pay over $700 per article)
We have hundreds of market listings that pay top dollar for your submissions. These include casual blogs as well as magazines.
Many of these sources pay well over $700 for a single submission.
We also link you to the submissions guidelines to help get you started right away.
You may publish new or existing articles
You can publish either new or existing articles here on Writer Town, as long as you own the content.
It gets better: You may also publish a synopsis/summary instead, and then link to the original source on your website.
Earn 100% ad revenue (AdSense, Chitika or Other required)
Unlike those other guys, you actually get to keep 100% of the revenue with us.
Your articles can optionally display various ads and all earnings are 100% yours to keep.
Don’t like ads? No problem. You can also display anything else in their place or disable them on a per-article basis.
Include self-serving links within your articles
Feel free to include any type of self-serving links in your articles, including affiliate links. After all, it’s your content – you have full control.
All links are also do-follow to help boost your SEO efforts.
Get your own bio
You also get a beautiful bio under all published articles telling readers more about you.
This gives people more chances to connect with you via social media and other sources you own.
Your content is promoted on your behalf
Many of your articles appear on prominent social media networks, in addition to our own newsletter. This allows people to benefit from your best work.
Receive monthly acknowledgments
During the first week of each month, we give a small reward to one random member simply for interacting on the site. Interaction may include:
Posting a comment
Posting an article (either a short summary, or a full-length post)
Sharing an article on social media
These range from Amazon gift cards, money and more. Again, we do this as a “thank you” and to acknowledge your time with us.
An irresistible directory of tutorials and guides
Just when you thought things couldn’t get any better…
We are constantly adding detailed guides about the following:
Launching your business
Leveraging social media
Creative ways to make money
These are available in the event you wish to expand your skills and explore new ways to be successful.
After all, every writer and blogger needs to know some other business tactics these days, and that is exactly what these tutorials teach you.
These guides alone provide a great reason to join, and we are constantly adding new ones to our library. Trust us, you’ll love them.
We host the occasional Q&A (written) interview with you and other people outside of our club.
If you have an interesting story that could help others, we want to hear all about it.
We cover your PayPal fees when paying for articles
This means you will always get the exact amount advertised when we request paid assignments.
We’re pretty relaxed
No judgmental people or Grammar Nazis are allowed here. We encourage you to be casual, humorous and conversational.
Apply: Only $1 a month
Pay only a ridiculously low fee of $1 each month via PayPal.
Note that we are a club; article publishing is only a portion of everything we provide. Thus, our small fee is to access every available feature as a whole.
That $1 is guaranteed to help you earn well over $2,000 from writing gigs. Trust us.
However, we can’t promise it will remain this low forever, so the best time to apply is now.
Wish to get a refund after signing up? Simply send us an e-mail and we’ll refund you. You may also unsubscribe at any time.
In other words, you have nothing to lose.
Please read before you apply:
– Important: We occasionally release assignments paid directly by us (bullet point #1, above). However, the remaining writing gigs come from external sources (points #2 and #3, above).
– To claim direct assignments (bullet point #1) you must reside in the U.S. and submit a completed W9 form by email. However, this is entirely optional. You can still enjoy most features without submitting the form and without being a U.S. resident.
In other words, everyone is welcome to apply to Writer Town, worldwide!
