Ladies Home Journal Looking for Paid Contributors

​

LHJ editors think your stories are just as good as those you'd find in a magazine, and they want to share them with the world. So jump in, show your stuff, and if they choose yours for the magazine, you'll get paid!

​

They are looking for stories about happiness. What makes you smile and keeps you sane? Or, tell them stories about being a mom. Just let them know what's on your mind.

​

Before you get started, check out these writers' guidelines to help you on your way.

​

Have your story all written up and ready to send? Submit your story (a Word document is best) using the easy form on their website. Your submission will go straight to editors -- they read every essay we get. Or you can email to yourstories@lhj.com

​

Have a favorite recipe with a great story behind it? Maybe it's your grandmother's famous cake, or the salad you make with your foodie teenage son. They are also looking for recipes (and the story behind them), so send yours at recipestory@lhj.com and you could be featured in the magazine! And they will pay you for it.

Dragonfly Publishing

Dragonfly Publishing opened a website for editors and artists who are looking for freelance work. Go to

http://sparksediting.wordpress.com/ for complete details on how to be listed free of charge.  

​

Dragonfly’s preference at this time is to add only those artists and editors through referrals from known publishers, editors, and artists.  They make sure all editors are professionals who understand how to edit modern genre fiction (the most structured of the fiction forms), are proficient with word processing techniques, and who provide reasonable fees to authors and publishers.

​

Hone your editing/artistic skills and earn a few extra dollars. Just fill out the contact form and DFP will contact you. (Paula Gorgas is an author published by Dragonfly )
