Hi! Did you know that 80% of journalists have been found to experience adverse mental health effects due to high levels of trauma exposure that occurs during their reporting? And that the average freelance journalist only makes $0.25/word? That means an average article pays only $200-300, despite taking weeks or months to report.
I want to continue to write about climate change, disability, houselessness, disaster, and Indigenous resurgence. These are notoriously difficult topics to sell, and to write about with care and integrity. If you like what I do, you can send me a tip.
