  1. Wow!

    What an awesome list. Thanks for gathering all of these posts together in a handy list. This should benefit anyone who has rate questions.

  2. Thank you SO much for compiling these, Deb. I have a similar list of discussion boards, email lists, etc. that I give out to folks looking to break into medical writing, but it doesn’t include the basic topics covered by yours. This will save so much time!

    • Thank you , Pat. I’m so pleased you find it helpful. Every now and then I like to throw out sort of a one stop shopping deal.

      Enjoy, and please don’t be a stranger.

  3. Aweosme list here Deb. This list will benefit those who wish to make freelance writing their career :)

  4. nice one..tq

  5. Great stuff, Deb. Rate setting only seems mysterious… with these links it won’t be.

    Thanks for including me.

  6. Ah, great! This cleared up some confusion I’ve heard.

  7. Thanks so much for the list. The topic of rates has been so mysterious with only vagues references with no specific dollar amounts – until now. My husband and I both work as freelancers and sometimes disagree about how much (or how little) to charge. Your information will make for some stimulating discussions. :-)
