Why You Should Publish Your Freelance Writing Rates

In my review of David Rodeck's professional website, one of the things I suggested was to publish his freelance writing rates (or, at the very least, remove the Rates page that really only had payment terms). I've long advocated making your rates public. I've never...

What Freelance Writers are Saying

If I’m looking for fresh, no-BS perspectives on writing blogging and publishing, Jenn Mattern’s All Freelance Writing is my first port of call.

I’ve been reading AIW from the beginning and I always find something of value there. Jenn and her contributors tell it like it is, refusing to sugar-coat the realities of the writing and publishing life.

In addition, it’s a good place to look for trusted recommendations on tools that will help you to be a more productive and better organized writer and self-publisher. I can’t recommend it highly enough.

Jenn Mattern continues to amaze me with the depth of her knowledge about writing and about building and maintaining a web presence. I count on the accuracy of her information. I enjoy her complete answers to questions. Jenn’s tops in my book.

About Freelance Writing

All Freelance Writing and its creator, Jenn Mattern, have been an incredibly supportive and helpful resource for my freelance writing business. I believe that the information I've gotten there has added value to my writing career in so many immeasurable ways. Mattern knows her stuff. She's got the years of hands on experience to back it all up. Best of all, she has the quickest bullshit detector in the industry and she's not afraid to use it.

Princess Jones

When I started devoting more time to my freelance writing business nearly a decade ago, All Freelance Writing was one of the first websites I started to read. Through the site, through the years, I have learned so much valuable information. Things that have made me think more about what I was doing and how I was doing it. In my view Jenn Mattern is a leading global voice for the freelance community. I feel fortunate to be a reader and to have benefited from her wise content. I feel even more fortunate to call her a colleague and friend.

All Freelance Writing is my go-to site for many reasons, but mostly because of Jenn’s talent for building and maintaining a successful freelance writing business. No erroneous information here – Jenn knows her stuff and practices what she preaches. What’s more, Jenn tells you what you need to hear – no sugar-coating or hand-holding, but honest, helpful advice that comes from her wealth of experience. I learn something new every day from Jenn, and if you’re paying attention, you will, too.

Jennifer has been an inspiration to me and my freelance writing career since the first day I started following her work. She's an experienced freelance writer with many other skills at her disposal, which is simply magnificent. If you are a new or even experienced freelance writer looking to improve your skills and knowledge, learning from the best, I highly recommend that you follow Jennifer.

"When I started my own business in 2008, Jennifer (Jenn) Mattern was someone I found to be a great resource for learning about a freelance writing career. Her expertise and 'tell it like it is' attitude is a blessing I was thankful to discover."
