Land $2 A Word at TV Guide

At TV Guide, freelancers land more than just a byline. Because editors already have the inside scoop on the top shows, freelancers are assigned to a beat and cover a particular show for the magazine.

So, if your writing can woo the editors, you could be landing regular assignments in no time – especially if you’re able to cover a show that the mag doesn’t have a writer for. An example of this is an L.A. writer who offered to travel to Albuquerque for an on-set feature of Breaking Bad. The editors gladly accepted, since they didn’t have a regular stringer for the show.

“We watch everything and make editorial choices in terms of what we’re going to feature in order to guide people to what they should be watching — what the best stuff is, what they need to be aware of, what’s becoming culturally relevant,” explained articles editor Bruce Fretts.
