ABSW has published a couple of new documents to help freelance science journalists.
A guide on minimum freelancing rates outlines what a fair starting point for negotiating a rate for freelance reporters, writers and editors should be.
Meanwhile, a manifesto on freelance science writing for editors and freelancers aims to highlight some of the common challenges that freelance science writers face, with the goal of improving their working conditions and wellbeing.
Both documents have been drafted with the help of ABSW’s 600+ members, many of whom have contributed.
The rates guide and the freelance manifesto are available freely on ABSW website.-
