When is a price for editing work too low or unfair? And do those terms even make sense universally?

Listen to find out more about

  • The narrative of the universally acceptable price and why it's problematic
  • Why every editor needs to do the maths
  • Understanding your own needs and wants
  • How everyone has a budget that works for them and them only
  • Why a lower fee doesn't necessarily equal an intention to exploit
  • How location and circumstances affect what's acceptable
  • The limitations of other editors' advice
  • The power of open conversations about pricing
