    I got my first copywriting gig with a person part of a team paid by the state. They’re working on a project and needed copyediting done. The offered to pay me up front, under the table, since they would be hiring me. Then, they said they would try to get me fully on the team after this project so I can get writing credit. The only way to get writing credit (officially) is for me to be on the team. Team writers only get paid at the end of the year in a lump sum once the project is done. She asked me for rates, and I said I would have them to her soon. I don’t have rates currently as most of my editing work has been unpaid. Help. Advice. Any. – by /hq/tuffcookiezz – –
