Make a living by writing essays

  1. Feb 15, 2006 #1
    I wrote an essay that my English teacher, as well as many other teachers in my school adored. Well, perhaps this is a long shot, but i want to get this essay publish somewhere. I also want to know how i can make a living by writing essay without earning a degree in english.

    Take a look at Isaac Asimov.

    Of course he did much more than that, but he did make enough to make a living out of writting essays.

    He wrote essays for magazines, but of course that was easy when he became famous.

    I'd say start with writing essays for local magazines, papers, and possibly smaller magazines. Look into Reader's Digest, they're always looking for stuff.
