Damn, I overshot my worth, told them I needed $3 an article.
Valerie MacEwan

Here’s a pretty comprehensive list of payment for writing Valerie MacEwan for websites and what not.

I told Medium $0.10 per word was my rate, which if one looks through the above linked to list, is well within the range of legitimate digital publications. A short story, such as this one or a personal essay such as this one is easily worth that much. Or they’re worth nothing, since that’s what I wrote them for!
