One Freelancer’s Quest For Payment

FishbowlLA editor Tina Dupuy has a very personal story about seeking payment from publications.

Dupuy, a blogger and freelancer, submitted an unsolicited op-ed to the Tampa Tribune. The paper published it, without telling her or working out any terms of payment. When Dupuy learned of the article’s publication, she wrote them an email. She received a response that basically said she was just lucky they published it at all.

In response, Dupuy sent an invoice — for a measly $75 — and created the YouTube video above. We’re awaiting word on whether she receives payment. We’ll keep you posted!

In the meantime, tell us: has this ever happened to you?
