Well? Are you? Do you have what it takes to channel your dismay about law school into a listicle? Are you a recent grad that is drowning in debt and thinks our paltry pay will save you? (Haha it will not save you, but it will be enough to buy a bottle of cheap whiskey.) Are you an adjunct who is dying to tell the world about your students who are busy doing no work whatsoever but are somehow proceeding through law school? Are you one of the few, the brave, the semi-rich that landed at BigLaw but you need a place to vent, under a pseudonym of course, about the nightmare hellscape your life has become? If you are any of these things, or any other flavor of bitter, you should write for us!
Important details: We pay $25 per short post, which we define as a 300-700 word post that ideally does not take you more than a couple hours to write, tops. (Yes, we’re perfectly aware that does not work out to your hourly rate. Sue us.) Those posts work best when they’re current events sorts of things, like an insane lawsuit.
We pay $100 per longer post, which we define as a 1000+ word post or something with hot hot listicle action that you people will come back and read forever and ever. Those things ideally include photos, gifs, videos, or some other visual to break up the text, because you remember from your legal writing class during first-year that no one wants to read a giant glob of text in one sitting.
If you need to write under a pseudonym of your own choosing or one of our handy existing anonymous identities, like Bitter Prof and Bitter Staff, that we keep around just for this purpose, that is no problem and our infinite discretion is assured.
If you’re interested, get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org with some story ideas, and we’ll talk more.
