GreenPrints Magazine - Freelance Writing Market
Do you have a personal story about gardening?
GreenPrints Magazine (The Weeder's Digest) is America's only not-how-to gardening magazine. They're not so concerned with the 'how' of gardening - they really want to hear more about the 'why'.
Write an article about your gardening tale and GreenPrints Magazine could pay you up to $150 US for your story.
GreenPrints Magazine wants to hear about the passion or frustration or enjoyment you get from gardening, so don't submit basic 'how-to' articles.
Their website says they want the following types of articles:
"Expressive, thoughtful, humorous, angry, contrite, flippant, searching, witty, observant, sad, inviting— whatever! We focus on the human, not how-to side of gardening."
If you're not sure what style of writing their editors want to see, take some time to browse through their sample stories (here: http://www.greenprints.com/content/7-sample-stories). These samples should give you a clearer idea of the style and tone of article they expect from submissions, which makes it easier for you to get your submissions accepted and paid for!

If you're tired of only getting paid pennies for your freelance writing, it's time to start looking at higher paying markets that pay you properly for your time and your efforts.
Good luck :)
