Data on how much freelance writers make can be tough to pin down. But it’s something every writer wants to know. I tackled this topic three years ago when I published this post.

Let’s face it we’ve all got mouths to feed. So it’s important to get a sense of whether freelance writing can yield you a real, bill-paying level of income. It’s a good question to ask.
When you dream about your writing career, do you picture yourself sitting at a romantic cafe, sunlight streaming through the windows to light up the table? As you sit, sipping a steaming latte, you scribble in your notebook about your world travels.
If you have travel stories to tell, plenty of markets are more than willing to pay for your stories about destinations, tips and your experiences on the road.
To get the great-paying gigs, you need to get some better clips. Move-up markets are where you can get nice-looking bylines that make your portfolio look more pro.
This is the rung of the freelance-writing world that pays better than mills, but not top rates. Think $100 a blog post, or $.10 a word, or maybe $200 an article.

To clarify the terms: this is a paid freelance position for outpostmagazine.com. You’ll be writing columns—anywhere from 800 to 1,000 words, though more is fine if you can justify it—every two weeks for at least four months on pre-established deadlines.

Here’s a list of writing jobs and pay rates for freelance writers, plus how I earned $35,000 my first year of full-time freelance writing. I thought I’d be relying on my husband for financial support, but I had no problems making money freelancing.
“If you’re a beginning freelance writer, or don’t know many other freelancers, you may wonder how anyone manages to earn enough to eat and pay the rent by writing,” says Lynn Wasnak in Writer’s Market. “Yet, smart full-time freelance writers and editors annually earn $35,000 and up – sometimes into the $150,000-200,000 range.”
