What is Ebyline? 29 comments


I’ve been hearing a lot of good things about Ebyline lately, so I decided to investigate. Ebyline is a site that helps match writers with news publications. They claim to be a free service and only accept experienced writers. The process to apply was very simple, though each application has to reviewed and manually approved. This is the email I received after registering:

What’s the next step? Once we approve your registration, you’ll need to complete the final step to be ready to work with editors through Ebyline.
