As a publisher, I hope we’re overpaying.
An author dynamic I’m wondering about on Medium

As a freelance journalist in the 1990s, I was paid one dollar per word. A one thousand word piece earned me $1,000. Hope this gives you some perspective on a flat rate. I appreciate that, in 2017, you’re looking to pay your writers. Add 20 years + inflation … what would that one dollar a word convert to these days? Just sayin’ :)
