It’s not easy to get paid to write, and for some people, that means being stuck at a low salary.
A new study shows that the average salary for writers in the United States has fallen to just $50,000 annually, according to the Writers Guild of America.
In a letter to the guild, writer Zola Sambi said she was struggling to make ends meet, and needed a boost in her income.
But even as her writing income dropped, she said, her bosses didn’t seem to care about it.
Sambi, who has worked for The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Post, said she didn’t see how a low pay could help her get ahead in the industry.
The writers’ guild told her that she’d have to prove her credentials and be willing to spend more time on the job to get promoted, and that’s not something she’s comfortable with.
In fact, Sambi noted, she’s been told she’d be better off looking for other writing jobs.
But the writers’ union says it has reached out to a variety of potential employers to find out if they want to hire writers who might make more money, including companies that make money through advertising.
The WGA is offering an incentive program for writers to get better salaries and a job offer if they’re willing to do some extra work, such as freelancing or helping with promotions.
The organization also says it’s looking into getting writers to spend time on projects, even if that means working remotely.
The Writers Guild is also asking for suggestions on how to get more out of a writer’s time.
The best way to find an agent to sign a contract with for a writing job?
The WAG said that many agents, as well as writers themselves, have questions about their clients.
The guild wants to know how they can get the best deal for their writers, and how to encourage them to get creative with their writing, including writing short stories, essays, and more.
For writers, the best thing to do is to not take the advice that the writers guild gave, Sambiesaid.
That’s not the case, the guild says.
She added that her experience working in media and being in the trenches of advertising and sales has taught her that there’s a wide range of writers out there.
Sambiasays her bosses did not want her to be an artist.
She said that’s why she was turned down for the jobs she wanted, and she felt like she was being rejected by her editors, who were also turning down other writers.
Sambia also said that she felt pressured to write the same story over and over again because of how much her salary would increase as the story evolved.
“That’s just the nature of being a writer,” Sambi told The Washington Times.
“I don’t think you can do this job forever.
You have to think about it, and I did.
I thought about it a lot, and it took me awhile to realize that this is not how I could make my living.
That wasn’t how I wanted to be a writer.”

And I hope that people are paying attention.”

The writer said she doesn’t want to see her career continue to sink.
But she added that she hopes her experience will help others who are struggling to find a job.
“This is something I have to do because I have a family and I have friends who need to get a job, and so it is not going to be easy,” Sambisi said.
