Writer: nature, people, places
This blog follows my efforts to become a freelance nature:people:place writer and earn more than the London Living Wage. In 2020 this was £10.75 per hour and I’m planning to work for 28 hours a week.
Each month I’ll review my progress against a set of measures which are:
The value of commissions I received in the month against an ultimate goal of £1204 (for 112 hours work).
The number of pitches I made to publications against an initial goal of 10 pitches a month with at least 5 of those to paying publications.
The number of words I write against an initial goal of 5000 words a month.
But, and it’s a big but… I’m not prepared to pitch to publications where I disagree with the ethical or political stance they take.
