Writers Must Stop Working for Nothing!

Hi Angela,

I have written to you before about what writer’s are paid for their hard work. I don’t know Examiner, but I have come across way too many editors who offer next to nothing for articles, stories, etc. I would rather my work sat in a drawer than let it be used for so little pay. Maybe there are writer’s who put out junk, I am not one of them. I feel it’s an insult to be offered so little for so much. As a writer I put in long hours as well as my heart into my work, writing is created by an artist, the only difference is we use words not a paint brush. I don’t think it’s right the way writers are paid and it will continue until all writers decide to stop working for nothing.

Ok, that’s it ! I had to say it, thanks for the ear.
