Side note: I try my best to respond to every writer who emails me in a reasonable timeframe, but sometimes life happens and the inbox implodes. If you don’t hear from me in a week, follow up!

These story fees now start at about $2,500 and rise from there. Other short, online-only content starts at $250 and rises with time commitment and reporting intensity."]
