Food is Money

Reads & Eats, an online publication on food is looking for articles and will pay $100 for an article of 1,250 words.

This is what the founder Yi Shun Lai has to say on submitting to Reads & Eats.

In July,  I started a new publication called Reads & Eats. (View it here.) Each month, I pen an essay about an American food I’m obsessed with, from club sandwiches to Long John Silver’s crumbly bits and everything in between. I also feature an emerging writer. It’s my way of sharing my platform as a published writer and professional editor.

Here’s what you need to know to submit to Reads & Eats. 

You must be:

  • An emerging writer with fewer than five paid publications. None of these publications should be a book.
  • Marginalized (I do not ask for proof or anything like that.)

Your submission must be:

  • A work of either fiction or nonfiction prose
  • 1250 words or fewer
  • Pasted into the body of your email
  • About food in some way
  • E-mailed to readseats@gmail.com

I accept 25 submissions per month. If I have reached this cap, you will get an autoreply. Please wait until the 8th of the following month to submit again.

Writers get paid $100, and I buy first Internet and Online Rights for two months. After that, all rights revert to you. Please reference Reads & Eats in future publications. You also get a free yearlong submission to Reads & Eats.
