The site for authors, Fortitude has changed it’s payment plan in an effort to boost it’s membership by offering better chances of being paid for writing articles. Among the changes, 50% of the articles that are published will now be printed on the Front Page, which will earn the publisher a flat rate of $10. For the next 72 hours, members will also be paid $18 for all new referrals instead of the regular $9.
This is a new site that is looking for writers to join and will pay them $10 – $100 for all articles that make the front page. This is a great opportunity for writers with and without experience, and with many international authors (non American) having just left Associated Content, the timing is prudent.
