 LeeAnne Krusemark – May 12, 2020

Getting Paid to Write for Online Blogs, Magazines & Websites 

(Even if You're a Self-published Novelist!)

Online publishing opportunities can pay well — some $1 a word and more, and can also help sell your book, build your online platform and portfolio, and benefit your future as a writer. To write and get paid for it online usually begins with a pitch or query letter. You will learn how and when to prepare each, how to find story ideas, conduct interviews and find sources, protect your copyright, and find opportunities that pay. And while getting paid is great, you’ll also learn how other options can lead to credibility and payment down the road.


LeeAnne Krusemark is an adjunct online Professor of Publishing for Harvard and more than 1,000 other facilities worldwide and is a nationwide speaker on the topic. She is also a former journalist, editor, and managing editor of newspapers, as well as an author of countless magazine articles and several self-published books, some of which can be found on Amazon. Her most recent books, including Scriptwriting A-Z,  provide tips about getting started in television, stage and the movies. LeeAnne has also recently authored a screenplay and has started representing other writers as an editor and agent. 

LeAnne has owned a successful award-winning public relations business for more than 20 years and is a Chamber of Commerce past president. The inspiration LeeAnne gives to others has even been compared in writing to Oprah!
