      I just signed up for Break Studios and was accepted. They are a poor man’s Deman Studios. They are set up almost the exact same way. All of the titles I have seen so far are for $8 each, but they are not quite as long as Demand articles. They are more like blog posts (between 250 and 700 words). I may write a couple of articles to give them a try if I have some down time. The titles are much better than the Demand titles and look as if they will be more fun to write. A title example is “The 10 Best Bars in NYC.”

    Fiction and Non Fiction Authors – sounds enticing at first, but be sure to read the fine print! For their Schiller & Wells imprint, which publishes work of new and upcoming writers, “writers and scholars accepted by Schiller & Wells, Ltd. will be required to contribute a fixed amount ($3,750) toward the prepublication expenses of their book.”

    General – Star Agency Needs a Writer

    If that’s the same company that posted a listing four months ago, and the wording is very similar so I’m thinking it might be, be cautious. I applied and was told I was accepted. I was eager to get started and never heard another word, so I emailed him and he said he had no work currently but was adding me to his mailing list so that I could see the type of work he is looking for. Since then, all I’ve gotten are twice daily email blurbs regarding entertainment news.

    Dear Deb,
    You must live in the D.C. area. I check your website often and had no idea you lived there. I live in Leesburg(Lucketts), and boy have we been busy shoveling this week.
    Anyway, I love your website and I’m not just saying that. Yours is the first site I come to when looking for a job. Your articles are excellent, too. I find this website the most layed-back and friendly with just the right amount of professionalism.
    I may have missed it, but I’ve never seen anything on writing schools and I am about to graduate from Long Ridge Writer’s Group. It is a great school and I have learned so much. They teach fiction and nonfiction because they believe it makes you a better writer all around. My favorite aspect of it is the one-on-one training you get with an instructor who reads through your assignments line by line. Who all is willing to do that?
    I’m wondering how much credit I will get for it when submitting to publishers or answering an ad for a writing job. Do you know anything about this? I am getting 7 college credits but I don’t know how much that is going to help me.
    Thanks for listening.

      Hi Holly,

      I’m on the same coast, but not in D.C. I’m from the small but great state of New Jersey. We didn’t get as much snow as you, but we were slammed nonetheless with more to come tomorrow.

      Do you mean will you be able to use your writing school experience when querying editors? I’m not sure, you can certainly put it on your resume. Also, you might be able to use some of your best assignments as samples when looking for work.

      Hope that helps!

    do we know how much exactly that Break Studios pays contributing writers? The fact they have no FAQs section and don’t address this issue before making people sign up means I’m a little wary…
