What is Writers’ Bloc?

Writers’ Bloc is a tool, a marketplace and a network for independent journalists, publishers and stakeholders in the journalism space. Our objective is to increase writing opportunities and to improve job security for journalists and editors.

We source writing jobs for journalists, source qualified journalists for publishers and remove the admin burden related to freelancing for everyone involved.


How does it work?

It's easy!


If you’re a journalist, simply sign-up to create a profile, then you can start submitting your story pitches today.

Submit A Pitch

We’ll distribute your pitch across our network of publishers and editors to find a match for your story.

Get Published, Get Paid

Once a publisher has engaged to commission your pitch, we put you both in contact to start the editorial process.


How much does it cost to sign up?

It’s free to sign up!

Writers’ Bloc only gets paid when the story is commissioned, and the journalist gets paid.


How do I get paid as a journalist?

Once your story has been commissioned, Writers’ Bloc pays you immediately.

Connect your bank account, and you automatically receive the relevant funds when your story is commissioned


How do you compete with Wire News providers?

Simply, we don’t!

Wire news is boring, homogenous and identical content shows up in 20 different publications.

Writers’ Bloc focuses on niche, unique feature stories, with depth and colour.


How do you guarantee the quality of writing?

We vet all our journalists’ writing, so we can stand over the quality and craftsmanship they bring to their stories.

Each journalist has a Profile and a portfolio of prior work, to browse and find the best voice to resonate with your audience.
