How much can I expect to be paid for my work?

What rate should you charge for your writing or workshop? Rates of pay can vary from organisation to organisation.

Each magazine, newspaper, or journal will have a standard rate of pay. This information is usually available on their website, or you may need to contact them directly.

Sites like Hey Pay Up gather the rates of pay for a variety of publications in the one place (although nothing beats contacting the publication directly to get the most up-to-date information).

You can find more about author fees and book publishing contracts on this website. Or read more about what Writers Victoria pays our writers.

The Australian Society of Authors has information on recommended rates of pay as well as helpful information on author contracts and freelance writing.
