LiberalAmerica.org is a fast-growing privately owned website with 2-5 million views per month. We are looking for talented writers for the following categories:


  • Liberal and progressive politics

  • Conservative/Republican fails

  • Life & Style articles that can be tied into a human interest or cultural angle

  • LGBT issues

  • Responsible gun solutions

  • Women's rights

  • Immigration reform

  • Discrimination

  • Other news of interest to American liberals and progressives



Knowledge of WordPress or ability to learn WordPress on your own time is required. Flawless grammar and spelling is required. We require our writers to write a minimum of 3 articles per week, but you can write as many as you want (with editor approval of titles).

We use Copyscape to check every work submitted. We are not interested in reprints of previously published work.

We hire freelance writers as 1099 contractors. You write your own articles and you retain the copyright to them. Story submissions will require approval by the editorial team.

Our pay structure is based on a revenue share model. We use 100% of the revenues that we receive from Google Adsense ads to pay our editorial team, IT expenses, specialized contract positions, and writers, with writers receiving 75% of the Adsense revenue earned from their articles.

Pay is directly tied to results, so our writers make anywhere from 0 to ,000 per month, and about once a month, one of our writers hits it really big with a viral article. While this is the exception and shouldn't be an expectation, we did have one writer make ,000 in one month last year.

That said, Liberal America isn't a get rich quick site. How much money you make depends on:


  • How often you write.

  • How carefully you select story ideas, featured images, and headlines.

  • How well you promote your articles.



We promote for you on our Facebook page of 450,000 fans, but any promotion beyond that is your responsiblity. We do provide tips and recommendation. If you have access to a big Facebook page or Twitter account, you can quickly grow your views and your own personal fan-base.

We're a big platform with a good reputation in the niche political blogging industry. Writing for us is a great way to make some extra cash and grow your own audience. You are welcome to link to your own sites, books, social media accounts, etc...in your bio, which is shown on all articles by default. Note that we are looking for serious writers who treat writing like a job, not occasional contributors. We require a minimum of three articles per week.

Please paste the writing sample into the body of the email. No attachments.
