Rich Mintzer on freelancing rates

By Katharine Swan On Wednesday, March 12, 2008 At 1:42 PM

Today ran a great article by Rich Mintzer on determining your freelance rate. Although the target rate of $40 per hour may not be for every freelance writer, Mintzer does an excellent job of showing how to determine an hourly rate, and then relating that rate to individual jobs.

It was also nice to know that I'm not the only writer who sometimes sees a project's hourly rate fall far below what I'd like! My "bad days" are the ones where I end up making less than $15 an hour. Thankfully there aren't many of those days anymore, but it's still nice to know that I'm not the only one who experiences them from time to time.
