Paying Our Contributors

WhyNot is about creating a safe space for young people to share and feel empowered.

We understand that many of our contributors might be uni students, have multi hustles (side or otherwise) or are at the start of their freelancing careers. Irrelevant of if it’s your first or one-hundredth published piece, we want to help get your foot in the door of publication.

WhyNot is committed to paying a minimum of ten young people $125 per published piece each month. It is important to note that we are unable to pay for all contributions, or submissions. However, where possible, we will aim to provide contributors with feedback on their work.

There is no limit to the number of submissions you can make, and you also have the opportunity for your piece to be shared and promoted, regardless of whether or not payment is received.
