Most writers earn less than 600 pounds per year
A news survey has found that 54 percent of traditionally-published authors and almost 80 percent of "go-it-alone" writers are making less than 1,000 dollars a month.
The 2014 Digital Book World and Writer's Digest Author Survey divided the 9,210 writers into four groups- aspiring, self-published only, traditionally-published only, and hybrid (both self-published and traditionally-published).
The poll found that more than 65 percent of the writers, who filled out the survey, described themselves as aspiring authors, and 18 percent clamed to be self-published, 8 percent were traditionally-published, while 6 percent said that they were pursuing hybrid careers, the Guardian reported.
According to the survey, over 77 percent of self-published writers make 1,000 dollars or less in a year, while 53.9 percent of traditionally-published authors and 43.6 percent of hybrid authors claimed that they earn below the same threshold.
Jeremy Greenfield, editorial director of Digital Book World, said that authors of all stripes, particularly self-published authors, don't earn much doing what they do.
