We’ll pay €300 for a three-hour workshop, €300 – €400 for a masterclass, and €1000 for a series of four such workshops during a festival. For a series of six two-hour evening, weekly workshops, we’ll charge a class of up to ten or twelve €120 (€100 concession) each and pass all fees on to the writer. We pay €150 each to multiple readers in an hour’s programme. If a writer needs to travel from another continent, we’ll pay $500. British poets receive £300 from us and European writers €300. Poets in the Versopolis project receive €500. Big, international names can require larger fees. For our bi-annual journal Southword, we pay €50 per poem and €300 per short story.
