Transparency around pay is a crucial conversation point for freelancers, and it’s at the heart of what FJ&Co is all about. At the next FJ&Co event, they’re going to be discussing the realities of making a living from your freelance journalism and they'll also talk about how you can increase your earnings.
Their panellists will share the different ways you can generate additional income streams outside of your journalism, whether that’s through content marketing, picking up a side hustle that supports your primary income or securing a grant so you can write the stories you want to report on. Or, indeed, all three.
