Recycling Your Manuscripts

Dear Power Writers, 

One of the best ways to increase your writing income is to sell your published pieces as reprints. Reprints often earn more than a first sale, especially if you know how to target them. 

Also, there is no limit to the number of times you can sell a reprint. I wrote one article that I sold as a reprint nine times, earning a total of several hundred dollars. 

So get out those sold pieces and send them out again. And again. And again.

  1. Hi MaryAnn –

    Some of my published pieces are for specialized markets. This has made it difficult to sell them elsewhere.

    Do you have any suggestions for this type of work?

    • Thanks for your comment and question, Susan. Specialized pieces can be more difficult to sell than ones with a broader application. I would suggest that you contact organizations related to your specialized topic and ask if they have a newsletter. If so, ask if they need articles. Even better, ask if they would like a regular column on the topic. Let me know how you fare.
