Earn money from your writing.
When you publish on Medium, you can join the Partner Program to earn money by making your stories part of our member-only content. Or you can keep your stories free and accessible to anyone. The choice is yours.
More about publishing on Medium:
First, make a free account. Then, to create a story, click on your profile picture in the top-right corner of the page, then “Write a Story.” To start a publication, click on your profile picture in the top-right corner of the page, then click “Publications,” then “New publication.”
Anyone can write on Medium. Whether you’ve never written before or are ready to create a full publication, it’s easy to get started and we allow you to focus more on big ideas and less on driving clicks. With the option to earn for your work, you can also be directly rewarded for the value you provide readers.
If you join the Medium Partner Program, you can earn money based on how much time Medium members spend reading your stories. No. Joining the Partner Program is free, optional, and you can choose to join or leave at any time. If you are in the Partner Program you can also choose which of the stories you publish are eligible for the Program. For more about the Partner Program, click here. Anyone on the internet can read your stories. Even if your story is being distributed in the Partner Program as a part of our metered paywall, anyone can still read a limited number of articles for free each month. If you want to share an un-metered version of your story, you can use a Friend Link. Your stats dashboard lets you see how your story is performing and gives you valuable insights into your readers, including where they came from and what they’re interested in, so you can grow your audience.
