  1. Great info. I found something called “The Examiner,” which pays you to write articles. You can search for any topic you like. Not sure how much they pay, but they do pay. They give examples of articles they’re looking for. I’m interested in writing about sports. They actually posted the opportunity to write about the sports program at the college I just graduated from! I’m considering it.

  2. Thanks for the info, Kathy. FYI, I entered a prompt contest on Suzie Townsend’s blog and came in second! The agents voted me best YA voice. Agent blog contests are a great way to showcase our writing and get a boost while we finish our novels. Take care!
