About Us


Welcome to The Starved Writer!

This site is for over-worked, under paid writers. Whether you work for a single company or as a freelance writer; supply web content, write ebooks, magazine or newspaper articles; the chances are, if you write, you are getting paid a lot less than you are worth.

We are all about helping writers and wanna-be writers stay up on news of their industry.

What are writers being paid? How are writers being treated? How can we become better writers? How can we make a better living doing what we love to do?

We scour the web for news of importance to the writing industry and we present it here, in bite-sized nuggets.

You can also find us on Twitter, where we post links to news stories that affect writers of all disciplines.

On our Facebook page you can comment on our links to stories and videos about writers, or simply post a link to your online work, e-book, blog or web site. This would also be the place to let people know you are looking for work or need their help with a writing related problem. The best part is, it's free! We don't collect e-mails or try to bombard you with "buying opportunities." We're just being friendly.

Professional writers should Connect with us on LinkedIn.

If you have something to say, feel free to comment. We do advise you against saying anything bad about a former (or current) employer, however, as you never know when circumstances might force you to work for them again.
