Freelance Writing Rates

I’d rather hop on a phone call (or connect via Microsoft Teams or Zoom) to discuss your content or copy needs, how I can deliver fantastic results, and my specific fees for different writing/editing tasks or packages.

But I’ll offer you a basic idea of my rates to give you an idea. 

Blog Posts/Articles: $250 per 1,000-1,250 word blog post, for example, for minimal research and $300 or higher for more in-depth research per 1,000-1,250 words – also, let’s talk about longer blog posts and monthly packages.

Copyediting: $20/hour

Copywriting: .75-$1/word (or on a per-piece or per-project basis)

eBooks: .20/word or $1,000 per 5,000 word eBook

Emails for Sales/Direct Response: $75 for daily/regular emails and $100 for one-off emails up to 150 words – can discuss longer form email prices

Fact Checking: $25-50/hour

Ghostwriting: .50-$1/word

Manuals for Workplace Health and Safety, Instruction, Employee Guidelines and Internet Policy: TBD based on scope, anticipated time, and research

Newsletter Articles: .20/word with light-to-no research/interviews and .50/word with more intensive research and interviews

Newsletter Production (Content, Design and Images): TBD

Images: TBD

Press Releases: .75-$1/word (or on a per-piece basis)

Scripts: TBD

Social Media Posts: .75-$1/word

Technical Writing: .50-$1/word (or on a per-piece basis)

Web Content : .50-$1/word (or on a per-piece basis)

White Papers: .75/word for 999 words and fewer and light research and .75-$1.50/word for 1,000 words and up with more intensive research

I drafted the above fee listing to give you a general idea, but I’m happy to work out per-hour, per-project, and retainer-based fees. For larger projects, I would prefer to work in terms of milestones (per task completed) or receive a 25-50% retainer up front.

Also, I believe revisions are a natural part of the relationship between a writer and client. I will happily perform two rounds of revisions. If you are still not satisfied at that point, we may need to discuss possible underlying issues and how we can best resolve them.

I accept payments via PayPal, Stripe, Zelle, and direct deposit or check.

I’m happy to work out a mutually satisfying arrangement on all these matters and draw up a contract.
