El Paso News Organization to offer $50 stipends for published work

The El Paso News Organization is dedicated to becoming the alternative news vehicle for El Paso and the surrounding area. As we strive to reach that goal we are looking for writers interested in writing news items, investigative reports or analysis and commentary on the issues facing our community.

For anyone interested in getting published here is your opportunity to write and get spending money at the same time. Any news or commentary article we select for publication will earn you a $50 dollar stipend. In order to be considered for publication your article needs to be topical and related to El Paso and its surrounding areas including Cd. Juárez.

All articles will be published in your name with the exception of those articles submitted about the Cd. Juárez violence or other sensitive topics for which you ask that a “pen name” be used. Each of those pieces will be considered on a case by case basis.

All articles must be original and must not have been published anywhere else before. All news pieces must include verifiable background information with opposing viewpoints given equal treatment. Position papers or news analysis will be accepted but those must have a thesis articulated through well thought-out analysis without resorting to attacking an individual or an organization. All topics will be considered.

There is no limit to the amount of articles you can submit for consideration.

To get started, simply register online. After you have activated your account; go to the Contact Us page and submit your request to the Publisher. Make sure you select “publisher” in the department drop down menu. Be sure to include your user name. When we have evaluated your request, an email will be sent you, asking you to submit an IRS W-9 form to us.

After you receive your welcome email, start writing and submit your article via the control panel. When we select your article for publication we will send you your check on the Friday after your article is published.

That’s it, write as many times as you want and earn some spending money while you do it.
