Legitimate, Good-Paying Academic Writing Sites that Freelance Writers Should Not Miss

Updated on November 1, 2016

Academic writing is one of the best sources of online jobs. If you have a knack for research, you can make money helping out graduate students with their theses. But while there are tons of sites offering academic writing jobs, not all of them are legitimate. Online scam is not a new thing, so must be careful. The academic writing sites discussed below are specifically chosen not only because they provide real writing jobs, but also because they use different payment methods—perfect for writers from any part of the world.

  1. WriterBay. The site never runs out of writing jobs. Nevertheless it is not a guarantee that writers will have regular assignments to do. They will have to bid for assignments, and prove that they have what it takes to do it. Assignments do not have a fixed price because writers are prompted to bid for a lower price to increase their chances of getting picked. WriterBay pays every 16th of the month. They also have a chat support that is online 24 hours daily. Apply at WriterBay now.
  2. Academia-Research. The site has jobs available most of the time, which can increase to more than a hundred per day during peak season. But unless you are a level 2 writer, you will have to bid to get an assignment. The more related the order is to your educational background, the higher your chances of winning the bid will be. They pay $5 per page for a general subject and higher for those that require technical knowledge.
  3. UvoCorp. The site pays twice a month, on the 16th and 30th. Some assignments can be taken automatically, while others will have to be bid for. Clients who are satisfied with your previous work may also assign their new orders to you. They have a very nice support group. Your messages are replied to immediately. Unfortunately, they offer very few jobs during the low season.
  4. Prospect Solutions. This is a UK based company so they pay in British pounds. Their price per page is a lot higher than with most other academic writing sites, but they also have very high standards. Clients may pay you lower than the stated price if they are not pleased with your work. Applying for the writer position with Prospect Solutions is pretty straightforward. You will only have to submit proof of your identity and education, and write a personal statement. Once approved, you can start bidding for orders.
  5. WriterPh. The site promises regular writing jobs, but their pay is very low. While average cost per page is $4 to $5 with other sites, WriterPh only pays about $2.5 per page. Yet one advantage of writing for the site is that, there is no need to bid for orders; you only have to be the first to claim. You are allowed to take up to three orders simultaneously provided that you can finish them by the deadline.
