If you have an interest in health and wellness and you write well, why not combine your two passions and get paid to write about what you love?
Here are three publications that pay you to write about health and wellness.
Note: Rates of pay are in US dollars unless otherwise indicated. Pay rates are accurate as of this writing.
ADDitude is a magazine concentrating on living life to the fullest when you or someone you love has ADHD. They want articles of 2,000 words or fewer on the topic of ADHD, and reports indicate the print version pays .22 per word.
They take 6-8 weeks to respond, so be patient. The website states that pay depends on the writer’s experience and the scope of the article. It’s unclear if the blog version pays, so be sure to firm up payment details before you start writing. You can read their writer’s guidelines here.
