Get $3 a Word at Parade

Luckily for freelancers, the most widely read magazine in America also relies on them for content: 80 percent of Parade comes from outside contributors since the pub has no staff writers. It’s definitely worth your words too; freelancers can snag $3 for each one.

Published by Advance Publications, Parade is carried by more than 640 Sunday newspapers and reaches an estimated 63 million readers. The mag’s wide reach means that freelancers have a large range of topics to choose from. From local stories to service pieces to national trends, tailoring your pitch to a broad national audience will impress editors at the pub.
