Do you have the means to become a novelist?
For example, the Writers' Trust Fiction Prize finals each won $2,500, while the finalist - this year Miriam Toews - won $25,000. The Scotiabank Giller Prize, which will be awarded on Monday evening, will award $10,000 to each short-listed author and $100,000 to the first one.
$450,000 of the Governor General's honors go to authors, poetry and translation. There' s no question that literature prices can influence a writer's earnings. The choice of writing as a profession can be a hard blow. Said he was gonna make the leap before he got too burnt out.
As with many authors, he has taken on other tasks: he speaks as an writer in school and works part-time in a bookshop. The chairman of the Canadian Writers' Union, Harry Thurston, has been writing full-time for 37 years. A part of this livelihood comes from two payments: royalties and revenues from the right of use.
The Copyright Act was amended in 2012 so that very small quantities of copies are free for teachers, but many public authorities have taken it as meaning that their whole course collection is now free. A legal appeal is under way, with the Writers' Federation saying that only one or two paragraphs should be used at a stretch, not whole sections.
In Thurston's case, the shift has reduced his salary by about a fourth. Writing is no longer a full-time profession for most people," says John Degan, CEO of the Writers' Federation. This is especially the case for mid-list authors, emphasizes Dean Cooke, head of the Cooke Agency. Thursston is breaking up the revenue of a book: Historically, the writer gets 10 percent - $3 for a $30 volume - the bookstore gets 40 percent, $12, and the editor gets the rest: $15.
This could well be less than 10 percent," he says. Canada provides funding to help some survive the meager times, and many of the country's greatest authors have been awarded, some of them on the shortlist for a Governor General's Fare: a Governor-General award administered by the Council:
For example, Michael Crummey was awarded a $20,000 in 2012 and $15,000 in 1998; Thomas King was awarded $15,000 in 2002 and Joan Thomas $12,000 in 2009. Deductibles are even then those assets that, as Thurston points out, can quickly devour that revenue to below the povernourishment line (which for a lone individual was just over $19,000 in 2010).
A proposal with three important suggestions has been submitted to the authorities by the Writers' Union: A royalty pay discount for performers earning less than $60,000 in royalties (a similar scheme already exists in Quebec); 2. The Canada Council grant taxes on sub-scholarships; and 3.
A further question that pursues the writer is the erosion of emoluments. Many but not all publishing houses are altering the way they do it. A few don't reimburse the title prize for the cost for which the title is for sale (even if it is a low discount). She still reimburses the author 10 percent of the binding cost, even if they did sell the album at a rebate.
The discount rate is at the centre of author's fees. E-books can offer larger profit margin, but the authors' emoluments are still being pushed, observes Cooke. Expressed in e-books, if an author had previously sold 10,000 commercial pocketbooks and 40 percent are now e-book sells, their take is sliced, comments Cooke.
It is $9.99 instead of $15.99 for the printed copy, which is another slice. Supplementary incomes have become increasingly important for authors. Still, most authors are not likely to fraction $10,000 a year from their writing. "I' m sure you know you're not here for the money.
