OVERVIEW OF THE WRITE JOBS 500 REPORT:

This report raises the bar for writers looking for well paying writing jobs. It's far more than a list and offers detailed summaries of each publication. It truly is invaluable and one of the best investments any writer can make. With close to 150 pages, it serves its purposes beautifully. Donna McGill, freelance writer.

The Write Jobs 500 Report profiles the 500 highest-paying publications ranked (from highest to lowest) based on estimated pay rate per word. The shortlist came from our database of 10,000 publications. The Report contains the most current information and links to writer's guidelines or editorial contacts.

(1) US/CANADA - This edition only includes publications produced in the US/Canada and is ideal for writers based in North America.

(2) WORLD - This edition includes publications that have international readership or publications that regularly feature stories/articles that are not location specific. Local/regional publications (e.g., New Jersey Family) or magazines published by local/regional organizations (e.g., Scouting Magazine) or magazines with country/local editions (e.g., Maxim) are not included in this report.
