Worth Magazine Flips the Model: Select Writers Can Pay to Write for Them

Worth Magazine

For my writer friends who gripe that Huffington Post doesn’t pay its writers, stay away from Worth Magazine! It has recently launched a “Wealth Advisor Program,” where high net worth gurus and aspiring gurus can pay Worth for the opportunity to write an article. (Worth reviews submissions and apparently requires quality in addition to the money before publishing.)

This isn’t a model that will help save investigative journalism. But if you believe (like I do) that valuable content can be created sometimes by people who aren’t professional writers, it’s an interesting model. It recognizes that the value created by media companies isn’t just the content, it’s also the distribution channels that deliver the content to readers and viewers.
