Writers Earn Below The Poverty Level According To Authors Guild

Don't touch my treats!
Panzer was getting the Panzermobile all fueled up when he heard crying and moaning coming from the Catosphere. Our big brave kitty followed the noise to the Publishers' Weekly site. What he discovered there made him sorry he found the source of all the crying.

According to a post by Rachel Deahl, the Authors' Guild did a survey of its members about writing income. What they discovered is very disheartening for new writers entering the writing arena. The survey showed that most authors make less than the Federal Poverty Level of $11,670 annually from their writing. What does the Guild suggest? That publishers pay higher royalties to authors, of course.

Panzer says, "That's barely enough to keep me in kitty treats."
