Libby, I applied to Life Tips in January. Although I was accepted at
that time, they had nothing for me at that time. I heard from them
recently and completed a major project. It was worth the wait because
the project was quite lucrative.



Don't write them off yet!

Deborah,


Thanks for the encouraging post! I don't mind waiting if something will eventually pay off, but there seems to be so many scams and people that say they want you, but just never reply :-( At least now I know Lifetips is a good one!

Hey Libby! I also applied to Lifetips about a month ago, never heard back from them, and emailed them two days ago to find out what the status of my app was. Still no reply. I think I will just try and forget about this one, and then hopefully when they do reply, I'll be surprised

Has anyone found how to apply to be a writer at justarticles.com? I've searched, but can't find any reference to it.



Thanks,

Jenni

Here's a submission opportunity from the freelancewriting.com job board that a lot of us can probably do very well--



The email address for submissions is: pfordmar@wordcrafts.com



<a name="2891"> Contributions wanted for anthology on 'less than perfect' mothers </font></font>





</a>

<table border="0" cellpadding="0" width="85%"><t><tr><td>Posted by Paula Ford-Martin </font> , Jul 06,2005,07:38 </td>
<td align="right">

</td><td width="5"></td>
<td align="center">

</td><td width="5"></td>
<td align="center">
Main Screen
</td></tr></t></table><a name="2891"> </a>



<a name="2891"> Editor seeks
entries for an anthology of real stories from real mothers about the
choices they make in raising their children – choices that sometimes
buck popular opinion and sometimes agree with it. It focuses on
decisions and events that may make parents feel guilty, and more
importantly, why they shouldn’t. </font></a>


<a name="2891">For
those stories that are accepted, the publisher will pay up to $100 for
stories of 1,000-2,000 words and $25 for short anecdotes (250-500
words), along with a free copy of the published book.</font></a>


<a name="2891">Stories
should be real occurrences that reflect the things that may make moms
feel guilty, but rarely cause lasting damage (e.g., when you let your
4-year-old use the scissors and she cut the dog’s hair). They should
not be manifestos or social essays on parenting issues (although they
may potentially address some hot-button issues like co-sleeping or
breastfeeding), but rather real accounts of individual choices. We’re
looking for “regular moms,” not necessarily professional writers -
although it helps if you can express yourself well in writing. </font></a>


<a name="2891">Submissions
can be sent electronically to editor Paula Ford-Martin via e-mail
(click on name above for e-mail address). Deadline is July 12th.</font></a>
<a name="2891">I look forward to reading your submission!
</font>


</a>
