Do you pay your writers?


HackerNoon does not pay individual writers directly. We are a publishing platform to facilitate the exchange of value between writer to reader, and writer to editor. Most HackerNoon contributing writers are here for story distribution, editorial support, and internet validation. People who write on HackerNoon generally also write on many other places around the web like Dzone, Forbes, LinkedIn Publisher, and of course, their own sites.

However, there are multiple ways a contributing writer can earn money from publishing stories on HackerNoon.

Get paid via HackerNoon Writing Contests!

Okay, yes, being validated and heard by a lot of people is super cool, but letโ€™s get down to business. When you publish with #contest-tags on your HackerNoon stories, you are entered to win monthly prizes from our wonderful sponsors. You read that right! Our contests have awarded our writers handsomely based on the quality of their work.
