To the Editor – I read the recent article on the fourth EMWA freelance business survey1 with great interest and some considerable concern.
When freelance writers express an interest in working with Rx Communications, one of the first things we ask them is for an indication of the hourly rate they charge. This is by no means a perfect indicator of reimbursement cost as clearly the time taken to complete a project and to what standard are as important, if not more so, to our costs. It is, nonetheless, a useful indicator. Recently I've noticed that many freelancers are charging similar hourly rates, regardless of experience.
