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.

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

Winner – Anupam

Winning Pitch – Proofreading : Everything you Need to Know

  • Third winner on 21st July

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

Ready? Start pitching!

It is really sad that I missed the pitchfest contest. Hopefully Ritika will be coming up with some other contests soon so that I can contribute. BTW, cannot wait!

Hi Ritika,

Is the contest still on? If so, I would like to write an article on the most common myths about freelancing;( e.g, joy of being your own boss, freedom it offers, working out of home), the difficulties faced and how to work around the problems.

When I chased happiness, I found emptiness!!!! I would like to write an article for addressing one of the major reasons behind a perpetual void that persists in lives of today’s generation despite having all the material pleasures. It’s like people have everything they wished for yet they are sad. Why there is no sense of fulfilment ? Why the youth of today is more vulnerable to depression and How can one be really happy ? I feel this is an imperative issue to be addressed and can make people think about the essence of life and what is actually… Read more »


Hi Ritika,
I want to write my personal story on why i took up freelancing as a profession and how it helped me with life.
I have a severe stutter since birth and it was only freelancing that helped me earn a living without difficulty. It may inspire people who have a similar problem like me.
