Let's Talk Rates! How to Ask for What You're Worth and Get Paid on Time
Miles Nadal JCC, Room 318
Toronto, ON
Share this event:

Why is talking about freelance pay rates and money in general so challenging? In this seminar, we ask long-time freelancers to share advice on how they've set their rates and how they've raised them over the years. We also talk about rates at various publications, share tips on approaching money conversations with editors and other clients, getting paid, and finding more lucrative work.

Doors open at 7 p.m. Seminar starts 7:15 p.m. and ends 8:45 p.m.


- Carol J. Anderson, an editor, proofreader, researcher, and writer for the private sector, non-profits, and government

- Allan Britnell, freelance writer and editor and past-president of the Canadian Society of Magazine Editors

- Diane Peters, a writer and editor who has covered a variety of topics for national publications and also teaches writing at Ryerson

- Suzanne (Sue) Bowness (seminar moderator), a long-time freelance writer/editor and writing teacher
