I take payment in nutter butters and pie.
Just kidding. My hourly rate is $20/ hour and is between $100 and $300 for a 500 to 1000 word article, depending on the time and research involved. If a piece involves traveling or extra expense on my part, compensation will have to be discussed. For large, long-term projects I’m happy to negotiate if you can’t meet my hourly rate.
Especially if you throw in some peanut butter pie.
