Photo by Icons8 Team on Unsplash Writing online hasn’t always been easy. As writers, many of us have been underpaid, overworked, or simply not appreciated for our efforts. Getting through that beginning phase of rejection and failure is no easy task, and it often takes a heavy financial toll on our lives.
That’s why it’s important to understand the options we have, from which we can devise viable solutions that keep us going. A lot of writers are mistaken to think that their options are limited to small freelance gigs or popular platforms like Medium and Vocal.
The fact is, a variety of websites and publications online are willing to pay handsomely for your writing. These places can help struggling writers and boost the earnings of well-established writers.
Below is a list of 7 websites paying up to $700 an hour from some of the best online writing options out there that can help you get started on earning the money you deserve for your work. 1. Chicken Soup for the Soul
