Ever wonder where you can land science writing gigs?

In today’s fast-paced world, there’s no shortage of research, scientific discoveries, technological breakthroughs, and environmental issues that people want to know about.

If you have an interest in science writing and a solid story idea, you can find a market to land an assignment. The scientific method is actually a good formula to follow to test out an idea. Seriously.

If you’ve ever been subjected to an episode of the kid-friendly show Bill Nye the Science Guy, he’ll convince you that if you drill down far enough, just about everything can be explained by science. For example:

  • Is Elon Musk’s goal to get humans to Mars even possible?
  • What’s it really like to use forensic science to solve crimes?
  • What are health researchers doing to find a cure for Alzheimer’s disease?
  • Can science help solve the food and fresh water problem in drought-stricken countries?

If you want to make a living as a freelance science writer, look around. Story ideas are everywhere. Validate your idea, and then pitch a story to one of these science writing markets:

Hunting for Writing Jobs? 8 New Sites That Pay Writers — Plus Important Updates

8 New Sites That Pay Writers — Plus Important Updates. Makealivingwriting.com

We know how much you love our lists of sites that pay writers. So we’ve got an update since last year’s list of 92 sites that pay $50 and up.

Why do we do these market lists?

First, we like to help writers earn a good living. We have a floor rate of $50 for inclusion in these lists so that you can move up from sites that pay writers $10, $15, and $25 for posts.

Then, once you’ve added a few clips from these better-paying sites to your portfolio, you can move up again to sites that pay writers more. (Don’t think those sites are out there? Read about writers who are making $200+ per post and a content mill that pays $400 per post.)

Second, we want to recognize sites that value the work their writers are doing. Good guest posts bring traffic to a site, which leads to list subscribers or ad revenue. When someone helps a blogger or business earn money, they deserve to earn money for that work. And we celebrate sites that have that same philosophy.

Now, on to the updates.
