How To... win £200 for an article

Here's an interesting site - How To books available free to read online, including some on writing which I really must investigate more thoroughly. And they are expanding - accepting How To articles on any subject for publication online. There is payment - what you get depends on how popular your subject area is, but the payment should keep coming each month once your article is online.

They're running a competition - all articles submitted during the month of July are automatically entered. The one judged the best wins £200, in addition to any money it earns from being published on the site.

I know several readers of this blog write articles as well as fiction. If you can write a How To, why not submit it to the site? Looks like a great opportunity, if you're an expert in something. Hey, you're all experts at womag writing - there's a start!

Oh wow!! The How to site is brilliant -their writing guidelines are really worth reading even if you don't enter the comp - they've got some handy hints on this type of non-fic writing. It's a great site, thanks womagwriter - I've passed it on to a few people I know are experts at this how to stuff! Cheers!!

Take care

Thanks for this. I already write for a couple of online sites, but neither is a UK company. Might check it out!

Ooooooh, that does look interesting. Definitely worth giving that a go and quite nice to have a bash at writing something a little bit different.

Another top tip :)
