Pay rates for free-lance journalism

    It occurred to me again recently that people don’t know how little we make. My last NYTBR review paid 300 dollars. I had a cover piece in 2014 that paid 600. I read the books i review carefully & often read other works by that same author to understand their whole trajectory.

    for a NYTimes essay:
