LARB’s Pay Policy
The Los Angeles Review of Books is dedicated to reversing the trend in which writers write on the internet for free. We offer a standard honorarium based on the current health of our Writer’s Fund, for which we are raising money on an ongoing basis. We are a small nonprofit, and the labor that goes into publishing on our various platforms — not just writing, but editorial, managerial, technical, educational, and otherwise — is still largely volunteer. Our ability to pay is contingent on available funds, which changes depending on the generosity of the organizations, businesses, individual donors, and grant-writing institutions that help make LARB possible. We try to concentrate those funds on freelance writers and journalists for whom the money matters most, and encourage those writers in a position to do so, to waive the standard honorarium and donate it back to LARB to help us build the institution. Our #1 priority is to sustain for our writers and readers alike a home for the best that is thought and written on culture and the literary arts. We are building that capacity every day, and are determined to continue to be part of the solution. We appreciate the generosity of everyone who has helped bring us this far.
