Freelance Writing – Write Online, Get Paid


Want to write online and get paid for it? AskDeb is looking for freelance writing on a wide variety of writing topics. We welcome writers who want to write about topics they choose, but we can also provide writing topics and specific writing assignments. The rest of this page covers what we look for when we hire someone to write online.

Freelance Writing

When you do freelance writing, by definition, you’re doing work for hire. You’re not an employee at all. You’re an independent contractor, and you own your own business. You can write what you want, when you want, and you don’t have to punch a clock or answer to some silly manager. And if we like your writing, then we pay you for it.

Writing Topics

We’re looking for articles which answer questions on virtually every subject. If you have writing topics that you’re interested in, please contact us with a query to see if we’re interested in publishing an article on that topic. (We probably are.) Our only restrictions, when it comes to writing topics, are that articles should be in “question and answer” format, and that the articles should be reasonably family friendly. We don’t need biographies of adult entertainers, but we are interested in all kinds of general topics, like dating, cars, food, and wine.

Writing Assignments

If you don’t already have a topic in mind, then we’re happy to provide writing assignments to aspiring writers. Send us an email to let us know that you’re interested in receiving some writing assignments, and we’ll discuss potential article topics.

What We’re Looking For

AskDeb prefers to publish articles of between 500 and 1000 words. Please be sure that you use good spelling and grammar. This isn’t amateur hour, and while we support new writers, we are looking for competence in the basics. If we publish your article, we will pay you and provide you with a byline.
