Subject:Help! How much do you charge? From:Linda Anderson <lindaa -at- PC-SERV1 -dot- EMTEK -dot- COM> Date:Thu, 27 Apr 1995 08:44:36 -0700
I've been offered a contract position writing articles for
various newsletters. The hitch is, the person who publishes them wants me
to set a rate per article. I don't have the faintest idea what to charge.
In hearing, there is wisdom. In speaking, repentance.
