Pay the Writers meeting

Wed 30 Jul, 6:30 PM

Presented by: Emerging Writers’ Festival, Overland, Writers Victoria and the Media Entertainment and Arts Alliance

Following the development of the Pay the Writers manifesto at this year’s Emerging Writers’ Festival, writers, editors and illustrators (and those concerned about their welfare) are invited to join us as we start to talk about a collective approach to the issue of payment – particularly for freelancers.

We invite people to come armed with ideas and enthusiasm. The meeting will aim to establish some general principles we’d like to organise a campaign around – for example, what are the aims of a campaign and who will it benefit?

You can read the Pay the Writers manifesto on the Emerging Writers’ Festival blog.

If you are a writer, editor, illustrator or literary-sector worker and think you should be paid for your work, fill out this survey and come along to the meeting.

Please click on ‘make a booking’ below to confirm numbers for the meeting. We hope to see you there…

Can’t make the meeting?

You can still help us paint a picture of the sector’s pay-rates by telling us how much you’ve been paid by literary orgs and publications over the last year (even if you worked for free). The survey takes less than 5 minutes to complete and can be filled out online.
