That’s okay! Here’s why.
Medium will pay ALL publication owners and editors in 2023.
However, this announcement comes with a catch.
I’m a publication owner of Online Writing 101 but I won’t get paid.
My publication isn’t open for submissions.
I’m a busy working part-time creator and entrepreneur. I already work my butt off.
At this point (except I hire someone to help me), I can’t add new writers, read and edit their drafts, and schedule posts for publishing.
I want to be my own boss.
However, I appreciate anyone who’s dedicating time to these activities and I’m glad Medium’s subscription-based model will fund those activities (although some think writers will earn less because of this move).
If you say:
“Kristina, I’d love to start my own publication, be open for submissions and earn some good money.”
I created a tutorial on how to create your own publication:
