    Default Getting Writers

    I'm going to be starting an automotive engineering website/message forum in July. One of the features I want to have is a monthly column written by a masters or doctoral student in engineering.

    How can I attract or convince students to write and submit articles? Also, how much should I offer to pay them for these articles?

    You should be able to get them for nothing, really...

    Don't they get more kudos if they've been published? And if they're on your site, they are 'published'...

    Yes RayBell, that's what I was thinking, but it's hard to motivate people to write for free when the website will have no track record.
