Pitchfest – Win INR 2500 for Your Next Guest Post (Closed)
By Ritika Tiwari / June 21, 2016 / Comments: 75
I have been toying around this idea for a long time, and the more I thought, the more anticipated I got.
I do believe writers should get paid what they deserve, but because this website does not make much money yet, I couldn’t offer much to other writers for guest posts.
When I just started out, I was frantically looking for websites that paid well for guest posts, but none of them were open to pay a newbie.
So, this is just my way of giving back.
Every writer whose article gets published here during Pitchfest will get INR 2500.
Interested? Here is what you need to know
Pitchfest June 2016
1- You need to pitch your ideas for a blog post, right here in the comments section. By pitch, I mean a basic outline about the article.
It should be related to writing in general or freelance writing (what we usually cover on the website). You could also write about productivity tips or bad habits for freelance writers. There is no wrong answer, don’t be shy, I am always here to help you out.
2- Once I approve your pitch, you can get to writing. For all the guidelines, read our Write for Us section. Posts that do not follow the guidelines mentioned will be rejected. (The finished drafts need to be at least 800-1000 words)
3- After finishing up, mail me the final draft to ritika(at)writefreelance(dot)in. The article should be attached as a doc file, and not copy/pasted
4- I might ask you to edit the article or if the final draft is not as good as expected, it might be rejected (in very rare cases).
Blog posts will be accepted till 20th July 2016.
There will be 3 top blog posts accepted for publishing on the website.
- First winner will be announced on 6th July
Winner – Nitya
Winning Pitch – 6 Unconventional Ways to find Freelance Writing Jobs
- Second winner on 13th July

So the sooner you get your pitch approved, the better. Also, if you have any questions, please put down in the comments
