Based on conversations I've had with other freelancers, it seems that rates across the section are not very consistent. For a long time I was earning 50 cents a word for stories in the daily paper. I recently got a raise to $1/word — to meet what some other culture freelancers were making, I was told. This does not apply to reviews, which are compensated with a flat fee, which also varies. One of my colleagues, who happens to be a man, makes $100 more than me per review (that's 40% more than I make). He has been there a couple years longer than me, but it's not clear if this discrepancy is based on seniority or what. Obviously there are many benefits to being a frequent NYT contributor, but these pay disparities are frustrating.Female

My editor (Tim Marchman) read the piece several times after I filed but it ultimately took him 7 months to give me edits. He did tell me in March 2020 to invoice him, since the piece was going to be held, and that invoice took two months to go through. Ultimately the story ran in late October 2020, about a year after I pitched it. It also had taken months for me to get a decent contract out of Vice, so all freelancers should be checking the terms of their contract. Vice tries slipping in lots of bad language.Male

They were very kind and generous and advocated for this rate to their company as well. I had worked with the client through an agency called Creative Circle previously and that's how we knew each other. That staffing agency was paying me like $20-30 per hour when I was working with the client through them previously. I'm not sure if the client knew this or not but I was really surprised by the difference in rate and felt a lot exploited by that agency once I worked with the client directly.

BUT the contract says 90 days payment and when I tried to get them to reduce it, they said it was a university-wide payment issue and that I could instead invoice when the piece went to copy-edits to speed up the process. I did that and ostensibly would have been paid within 30 days of publication that way, but the finance person I was dealing with was an absolute mess, repeatedly ignored my emails, and it turned out had not put me in the system so now I am still waiting for payment (2 months post publication). I assume it will come soon since they've now corrected the mistake but we'll see....Cis, Female
