Cracked.com is looking for writers.
The site hosts a hidden discussion board called â€œCracked Comedy Workshopâ€ where contributors and editors hash out new ideas. Follow this link to join the workshop and get a chance to write for the site.
Unlike some online outlets, Cracked.com pays its writers. It is a good way for aspiring writers to build a following and for established writers to find a new audience.
Hereâ€™s more about the pay scale: â€œour full-length feature articles start at $100 each, and after your fourth published article you get bumped up to the veteran pay of $200. If your article is among the ten most popular that month, you get a $50 bonus. The Quick Fixes we mentioned earlier, since theyâ€™re only a fraction of the size of that other stuff, pay at $50 a shot. You turn in the finished article, you get paid by PayPal â€” thereâ€™s no waiting for months to get a check. Also, if you have a blog or a Twitter account or a book to promote, weâ€™ll let you advertise it at the end of your article and send thousands of readers there.â€
