Land $2 Per Word at Marie Claire

 With a total readership of 3.8 million, Marie Claire‘s audience is as passionate about human rights around the world as it is about the latest fashion trends to hit the runway. And enterprising freelancers can land a cool $2 a word with a successful pitch to the glossy.

For starters, newsy ideas for long-form reported features or first-person survival or adventure stories are very welcome. Examples of recent news features include an award-winner about scams operated by fraudsters claiming to be raising money for breast cancer research, and another focused on the dangerous effects of Ambien on women.
