If you peruse the sidebar of frequently read blogs/links (including Intellectual Affairs and Ms. Mentor), you probably won't be surprised to hear that I have a fondness for writing-about-academia. Now, thanks to an announcement at PayingWriterJobs, I've learned about The Irascible Professor, which calls itself an "independent journal of commentary on education issues."
The commentary is well-written, and it's open to "guest commentators and freelance education writers. To be accepted for publication, contributions must focus on education issues (K-12 or higher education) and they must meet our editorial standards. Typical payment is $50 per article upon publication." Contact the editor via the Web site to find out more.
