As I discussed in this post, there are so many different ways to be a “writer.” Here are a few with the salaries that go along with them!
Author: Average: $53,000. This depends on the type of novel, publishing company, and success of the novel you write! Get writing!
Playwright: Average: $38,000. This depends heavily on success of your work and the city you live in. If you have a passion for this industry and you are talented, your chances of a higher salary are great!
Magazine writers: Average: $32,000-60,000. This varies with the type of writing you are doing, whether it is permanent, or freelance.
As I always say, nothing replaces the gratification of doing something you love! Don’t let money hold you back!
