I get “how much do I charge?” queries from writers regularly.
The chart above is from the Editorial Freelancers Association. If you’re completely new to freelance writing, it gives you a rough guide.
TIP: As the webpage above reminds you, “one page” is routinely estimated to be 250 words. This becomes important when you’re writing for the Web, because “one page” of Web content can be any length. It may contain just an image, or 250,000 words… (or more…) So, when quoting on Web content, quote on the number of words, rather than the page.
Please remember too, that what you charge is up to you:
It’s much more sensible to think about pricing, work out what you need, and then set about getting it. I’ve always said that what you charge is up to you.
