Do you pay your writers?


HackerNoon shares a part of its revenue with our writer community, rewarding the best stories of top tech topics via Writing Contests. So far, we have distributed almost $300,000 in our writer community. We aim to get all our top tags sponsored for our writers as it encourages the tech community to share high-quality educational content, making learning accessible to everyone.

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.

Okay, yes, being validated and heard by a lot of people is super cool, but let’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.

Here’s the feedback from one of our winners:

"I am beyond honored that my first ever published article has won fourth place in HackerNoon's Future of Gaming Writing Contest. Writing an article about a tech subject was a leap of faith. To my surprise and delight, it was accepted for publication by the hardworking, ever-so-eloquent editors at HackerNoon. Thanks to the whole team and all the editors who voted for meI also wanted to take a moment to give a big shoutout to MEGAFANS, who helped create this contest." — Micheal Benko, Contributor at HackerNoon.
