Since this is the first Public Edition of the paying online opportunities newsletter, I’m putting it here on the blog, but future editions will be available on the Writemymoney Buy Me A Coffee page.
I am a firm believer that the internet is a great place to make an income. I started properly pursuing finding opportunities to make money online in 2014 when I experienced a rather difficult pregnancy. Before that, the internet was just a place to play and dig up information for ‘real work’.
Yes, I didn’t know back then that a person could make a very significant amount on the net. I never imagined making internet work a primary source of income. It was never even on my radar that money could be made in so many different ways online.
2014 opened my eyes. I started out as a freelance academic writer and I actually was able to take jobs that worked for me. I could determine my hours and rest when I needed to. AND I realised that I was making almost $500 every month! That was better than the job that I thought was ‘real’.
I started branching out, writing a wider variety of content. I took a bit of a break when my baby was born, but the world of internet work was never far from my mind. I decided to take the writing experience I had from 2009 and turn it into something that would work for me as well as anyone else who wants to join me.
After a lot of planning, researching and work, my labour of love has finally started bearing some fruit. It all stemmed from my willingness to just take the first step, which is what I am urging you to do too. The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step after all.
Since I was already looking for opportunities for myself, I decided to package them for other people. There were so many that I wasn’t qualified for or interested in that I thought would work great for someone else if they only had access to them. That was the push I needed to launch the This Week’s Paying Online Opportunities Newsletter.
The newsletter is broken down into 4 tiers.
This edition of the newsletter contains offers that pay anything from $1 to $50. You can access this for FREE! For no charge at all, you can try out for opportunities and start making some money.
Next is the Whatsapp edition that costs $3 a month Subscribers get offers that pay up to $100 in their Whatsapp inbox once every week. They also get included in a Whatsapp group where I post paying online opportunities that I come across before the next newsletter comes out.
Payment can be made via Payoneer, PayPal, OneMoney, Ecocash, InnBucks, Mukuru, Moneygram, and City Hopper. You can feel free to suggest a mode of payment that works better for you.
Supporters are people that sign up for my newsletter on the Buy Me A Coffee platform and, well…buy me a coffee! Each coffee is $5. Supporters are free to buy me more than one, I actually do use this to fund my coffee habit. In return, they get access to opportunities paying up to $500.
Members get sent all of the offers, there is no monetary limit that applies to them. Membership costs $10 a month. Members get:
– Access to exclusive posts and messages
– Access to the archives, to all the newsletter that have been sent before
– Access to free and discounted extras
– Access to glimpses behind the scenes
– First access to Writemymoney merchandise
Supporters and Members are able to make their payments online using whatever they use to make their online payments.
All the editions of the newsletter are sent out once a week. Supporters and members get their newsletters directly to their email invites.
Without further ado, here is this week’s public newsletter. Enjoy and good luck!

Alright, let’s get into it!
Submissions are open for the ‘Letters I’ll Never Send’ anthology. Their guidelines say, “This anthology will be a compilation of first-person accounts including letters, prosaic poems, diary entries, postcard letters, very short personal essays, and other genre-bending experimental pieces.
“letters i’ll never send” is meant to serve as a sentimental linkage between the writer and the reader. It should lure the reader in emotionally, so that they can resonate in some meaningful way. Simultaneously, all pieces inside the book should connect with the others in vulnerable, open, or spiritual ways – or all of those ways. Essentially, just write as if you’re writing to whoever, and run with whatever comes up – whether it’s an angry letter, a love letter, a breakup letter, a friendship letter, a self-reflection letter, a letter to yourself, a postcard letter to a friend/significant other, etc.”
Pay is $50 for submissions of up to 1,000 words. Details here. Deadline: December 12th, 2021.
The Journal of Compressed Creative Arts publishes weekly. “We accept fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, mixed media, visual arts, and even kitchen sinks, if they are compressed in some way.” General fiction (including prose poem) submissions are up to 600 words.
Also see their guidelines for Topical Thursdays (up to 1,000 words) and Triptychs. Pay is $50. The deadline is 15 December 2021 for general submissions; Topical Thursdays are read year-round. Details here. Deadline: December 15th, 2021.
Table//FEAST Literary Magazine has three contests: for flash fiction, a micro/mini poem, and translations of poetry (send up to 3 translations).
Value: $40 each for flash and micro/mini poem; $200 for translations
Open for: All writers and poets
Details here. Deadline: December 15th, 2021.
The Fray publishes original themed non-fiction of 1,000-4,000 words. They prefer pieces – including review essays — with a strong connection to the magazine’s themes of understanding other people and cultures, encouraging empathy and compassion, and defying categories and conventions.
They want work on the ‘Openings and Closings’ theme. “For many people, life nowadays is a state of continual transition. Economies shut down, then reopen, then shut down again. Practices of business and leisure are in flux, responding to ever-changing local conditions. The pandemic continues to foreclose some possibilities while opening others, and it is anyone’s guess what the new normal will eventually be.
The Fray magazine is looking for essays, reportage, and photo essays that examine experiences of upheaval and realignment—of whatever variety, and however construed.”
They publish news (in-depth profiles and other reportage): $50-100; commentary (personal essays, op-eds, and travel writing): $25-75; art (photo essays, artwork, videos, multimedia projects, and accompanying photos/art): $25-75; interviews (Q&As): $25-75; and reviews (reviews of books, film, music, and art): $20-50. Blogs (shorter pieces, in any genre): unpaid – they will determine after seeing the first draft, which pieces will go in the blog section. They do not publish fiction or poetry. The pitch deadline is 15 December 2021. Details here and here.
For each issue of Sasee, our cover will house a piece of artwork. We are currently seeking artists of any medium who feel that their original work exemplifies women. We do not pay for cover art. If your artwork is selected, however, we will do a short bio on you.
