5 Personal Essay Markets for 2016

Writer Abroad’s favorite kind of writing is the personal essay. When done right, a personal essay takes courage, honesty, and delivers the kind of power than only a real life story taken to the universal level can.

There were many markets Writer Abroad wrote personal essays for last year, and some of them were new to her. She’d like to share the places, both new and old, that she wrote essays for last year in hopes that they may help you find a new home for your work this year.

To help you decide where to send your work if pay and reach is important to you, Writer Abroad has also created this not-so-scientific pay and reach scale:

Pay scale: $ 400 and under, $$ 800 and under, $$$ 1200 and under

Reach: * Medium ** High *** Highest

(Reach was calculated based on the overall response from Writer Abroad’s articles and by how well the placed piece helped sell copies of her book. Obviously, this may vary based on the topic of your piece.)
