What does this involve?

The Illustrated Freelancer’s Guide is a practical resource for the increasing number of artists, makers, writers and other creatives working freelance in Scotland today.

It was created to fill an information gap for creative freelancers and help them understand their rights and best practices to help avoid and address difficult situations.

This easy-to-reference guide was written by Heather Parry and illustrated by Maria Stoian. It uses a highly visual combination of comics and text to highlight key issues, model scenarios and educate creative workers about how to protect themselves with regards to payment, copyright and creative work in general.

The guide is available to download as a PDF file (13.5 MB).
