Health, art, and tech markets looking for pitches from freelance nonfiction writers

By AntonioPublished 2 years ago 3 min read

Finding good freelance writing opportunities can be pretty challenging. Here are 3 more markets you might be interested in. These are niche markets, but each is very broad. One covers health and wellness, the second is a tech, science, and gaming market, and the final selection is about art and artists.

Looking For: Nonfiction

Payment: $150.00–500.00+

More Info:

Well + Good’s tagline is “Wellness For Everyone.” This online publication has spent the last decade covering all different topics related to what being healthy means. Being healthy includes a well and healthy mind, body, and spirit.

Nonfiction: They are looking for both reported pieces and personal essays. They are interested in food, physical health, mental health, lifestyle, beauty, travel, and fitness. If you feel like you have a story that does not neatly fit into one of those categories but would still be great for Well + Good, you can pitch that as well. Depending on the topic, there are different editors, so make sure you are pitching the correct editor.

The rate of pay will be negotiated at the time of assignment. However, they do have standard rates, so you can get an idea of where negotiations may start.

Reported pieces can start at $150.00 for a very short article of 500 words but can go up to $500.00 for an article of 1,200 or more words and relies on more than 4 sources. Payment may climb about the $500.00 mark.

If you are pitching personal essays and op-eds, these articles start at $200.00 for articles of about 600 words and can go up to $400.00 or more for articles of 1,000+ words.
