R. B. Stuart's Comments on Writing for Free
February 18, 2011 | 03:19 PM

Hello, R.B.,
Have you checked with our local papers and magazines lately to see what they pay writers? Guess not. The answer is a pittance or nothing. Still, why blame the owners of the publications? Paying as little as possible is good business. There is always a writer who will do it for less or for free for the glory of the byline or, as one writer said to me, to freshen up her resume. Make writing an avocation and not a vocation. Good and bad writers are a dime a dozen these days.
