AMWA Freelance Salary Survey

We are launching our first ever Australasian AMWA freelance salary survey.

AMWA Freelance Salary Survey
 
We developed this survey with help from our American (AMWA) counterparts who have conducted a similar survey multiple times over the past couple of decades (you can read more about their surveys here).  

Our mentoring program and discussions at our annual conference have highlighted the need for an open but anonymous discussion of freelance rates. Our mentors especially have only their own anecdotal stories and experience to pass on to new writers.  Having evidence-based data will give new writers a starting point for the art of pitching and quoting for new work.

As American AMWA notes: “the survey serves as the most dependable basis for setting salary ranges among employers and for negotiating salaries and contract fees among employees and freelances/consultants.”  
 
Please not the survey is anonymous and no identifying information will be collected.
All results and data will be available to all members once completed and collated.
