I have half a dozen contracts paused by Upwork. How can I get rid of them so that they do not impact my score? I do not think they will be continuing.

Ask the clients to close the contracts. If they don't respond, then close them yourself.

 

If you can manage it, close only one or two at a time, interspersed with other contracts that are closed by clients with feèdback present.

I am plagued by this too. Recently, I had 3 new contracts where the clients only asked for a couple of articles and then became unresponsive. I want to close them myself but am leery of doing so because it might impact my top-rated status. Upwork should close inactive contracts after X number of months, without the clients being able to affect the contractor's scores, because they (the clients) did not prove themselves to be worthy clients.
