Statistics from a 2015 report conducted by  The Writer’s Union of Canada indicate that on average, Canadian writers make $12,879 from their writing—that’s well below the poverty line. Accounting for inflation, writers made 27% less in 2015 than they did in 1998. And women writers made 55 cents for every dollar made by men.

What can writers do to empower themselves in this kind of market? Written by Nick Ripatrazone, this article in The Millions is a great starting point.
