The start of the new year is often a time for resolutions, like eat healthy and lose weight, learn to play a musical instrument, learn a foreign language, etc. This year, why not make a practical resolution: write for PHPMaster!

PHPMaster is looking for people to share their knowledge, experiences, and opinions on a wide variety of PHP and programming topics. Have something to share? Have something you’re excited about? Get in touch with our friendly editorial staff.

Articles run between 500 and 1,500 words, and topics range from tutorials to editorials. Of course you’ll be paid for each article, but the real reward is knowing you’ve helped others who read your work. PHPMaster has become an excellent resource for PHP developers from all walks of life and at different skill levels, from beginners to experts.

So what’s the process? Well, we ask you to pitch your article idea first. The pitch doesn’t have to be anything too formal; the quick gist of what it will cover, what the expected length might be, and what audience you’re targeting is sufficient. This is to make sure it’s not currently being written by another author. (No one likes to waste time writing a duplicate article!)

Once the pitch is accepted, write your article and email it to us. You can submit it in whichever format is most convenient for you, be it Microsoft Word, OpenOffice/LibreOffice, Google Doc, RTF, or HTML. Our editors will review the article for accuracy and edit it to tighten up any language if necessary, and then send it back for your review.

When everything is set, the article is loaded up in the content management system and published it for all to see! We’ll send you a final word count and you submit an invoice so you can be paid for your work.

Your writing could reach an audience of over 300k budding developers and PHP experts a month, world-wide. It’s a great way to earn some extra money and build your reputation in the PHP community at the same time. So what are you waiting for? Send me an email at today to introduce yourself and pitch your topic!

    This seems like a really good thing to do. I am going to try to do this in 2013. Seriously. It’s not important but – do you think chicks dig this? I mean the whole author thing.

    I would like to thank you guys of your great work by writing amazing tutorials. I am suggesting if any of you guys can write a tutorial about APIs and how clients access API with API-Key.
    I think that such tutorials will be good since we are living in a world of APIs.
