Writing outside

OKANOGAN COUNTY – TheMethow.com is offering paid bounties to local writers for accepted articles of interest. The offered rate is 5.5 cents per word, which comes to a bit over $40 for a standard article of about 750 words. No journalism degree is required, but writers should be able to communicate clearly in English, have researched the subject and included the necessary information. Answering the “Five Ws” is a good place to start.

TheMethow.com is primarily interested in Methow Valley and in-county news articles, some kinds of local human interest stories, as well as interviews with long-time residents or other interesting people. Other media, such as videos and photographs, may also be accepted.

You may use the contact link on the main menu to pitch your article idea to gauge our interest. If you have already written your article, you may also submit your articles there. Alternatively, you can signup with an account here, and then ask for an account upgrade in order to submit your articles via the site publishing system.

Articles will be subject to editing and proofing, as needed, before publication, with the writer being included in that process. Paid articles accepted will be exclusive to TheMethow.com.

There’s a possibility of continuing part-time employment as reporters for one or two interested writers.
