    The amount you make as a freelance writer will depend on where you are situated, who your employer is, the type of work that this employer requires from you, and how often they need it. All writers' paychecks are made up of two sections: the "gross" amount which covers all hours worked for the time needed to complete that particular task, whether or not it was completed successfully; and then an "expense allowance" which reimburses the writer who has incurred certain expenses to give them what's better known as net pay. Expenses can include things like printing costs, postage costs for delivering materials to clients, computer/internet connection/fraud fees/etc.

    It depends on how many hours they put in per week, the quality of their work, and if they have strong representation. A median freelance word rate is $25/hour or $750/week. Writers who can write quickly and produce high-quality work will get a higher rate then those that do not. A writer's representative will also negotiate a higher rate for them depending on contracts with different clients. The best way to make more money is to increase the number of hours spent writing by developing efficiency techniques such as understanding an article better before starting it or staying focused while typing with pre-defined goals by setting goals for how many words to type at a time. Higher quality means higher rates from different clients which increases income.

    It depends on the writer, their circumstances, and how much experience they have. The first factor driving a freelance writer's salary is writing experience. Experience as a full-time editor or co-authoring articles can be useful as well as giving some ground for people with lower levels of freelancing income. The second major factor is circumstance - this includes both work experience as well as non-work related issues such as location, education level, special skillsets outside one's field of writing). In general, someone with more experience will make more than someone with less unless it is possible to exploit their "special" skillsets (e.g.

    A lot of freelance writers make between $15 per hour (~$30,000 annually) and $300+ per hour. This answer will depend on the experience level, niche, expertise, how much time they're willing to commit to projects, etc. For most beginners it's usually in the range of ~$15-25 or less. I would say most experienced freelancers make between $25-$35 (or more) per hour (often with higher rates for content marketing), whereas some experts can make upwards of $150+, depending on what they write about and how in demand their work is at the moment.

    That depends on the type of work and how much you're willing to work. If you're a full-time freelancer, expect to make about $25 per hour or $31,250 per year. Freelancing is ideal for those who want total control over their working hours and ability to set rates accordingly. Professionals with specialized skills can often net as much as they would as employees at a company where they may earn more than employees elsewhere due to overhead costs that are incurred by employers with multiple workers in one location e.g., office space, supplies, equipment).

    Depending on who you work for and how you write, your hourly wage can vary even if the content is the same. Estimates for a well-paid writer can be $400k per year or more, but this typically means working full time and taking less interesting assignments than someone who works freelance part time. I would say that most writers fall in the $140k to $200k range per year after taxes, although it's hard to find consensus on this number because so much depends on variables such as whether they work full-time or part-time and in what capacity they're writing (freelance or staff).
