humor markets & tax tips

We could all use some extra money, and as writers, there are some unique opportunites available to us. If you can write funny stuff, here are a few companies that will pay you good money for your submissions:

- Kalan LP: pays $100 per greeting card idea
- Ephemera: pays $50 per slogan idea (for buttons, stickers, etc.)
- High Cotton: pays $125 per doormat slogan idea

While you're busy making more money, check out a way to save more as well. This article on tax tips for writers, posted by Chuck Sambuchino at GuidetoLiteraryAgents.com, is filled with some good ideas for deducting expenses related to writing. If you haven't filed your tax return yet this year, take a minute to read this article before adding up your deductions.

I've actually sold stuff to both Kalan and Emphera in the past, though I haven't submitted anything there in quite a long time.

Charles - hey, that's awesome! You should get back into it. It's great extra money. Kalan is prompt with their payment, and Ephemera is very responsive to submissions.
