E25: Freelancing in India? How much should you charge for your creatives?

The Write Creed

11-10-2021 • 15 mins


Over the last decade of teaching students in the fields of communication, media, journalism, etc, Eisha has had the same queries year after year from students, peers and friends who wish to spread their work far and wide but don't know how much to charge. To those of you who wish to get writers (all kinds, fiction/non-fiction, journalists) photographers, artists and designers to submit their work to you or "offer help" or "support you", you should PAY them for their help/support/job. They may be your best friends but they need a livelihood. As for how much should you pay or how should they charge you, here's a rough guide. Every organisation is different and will have their own budgets and goals but Eisha is putting it down in this episode of The Write Creed because she knows people, even the most seasoned journalists, exploited by companies/NGOs and made to work for almost free because they found it "too awkward" to ask for money. Don't be. If you don't know how much you should charge, let this be a guide.
