No, not the bright, shiny, scam spam that often lands in your mailbox – both virtual and physical.
Typically, emerging writers send out reams of work and their only payment is seeing their name beneath the work when an editor selects the by-product of their blood, sweat, and tears for publication. In the current data driven, information economy, content is viewed as a right to the consumer and 21st century culture has created an expectation for free access. But free access won’t pay the bills and creative content was the work product of someone, somewhere. So I am happy to share with you this post from Trish Hopkinson with a compilation of markets for submitting creative work and low and behold, get paid for it! Paying Calls for Submission – Poetry, Prose, Art, etc.
