Caster is the online marketplace connecting Australian freelance journalists with publishers around the country. Journalists are pitching stories, accepting briefs and getting published and paid wherever they are. Caster operates in metropolitan and regional areas of Australia.

How it works

Pitching

Journalists can pitch stories to publications around the country. They set their own rates and control their own schedules.

Briefing

Publishers post broad and specific briefs for journalists to apply for. They set rates and timeframes. They have access to hundreds of vetted journalists in every pocket of the country.

Gather and submit

Once a story has been commissioned or approved, journalists can get out there and get the story. They submit it through the portal with any pictures or video required.

Payment simplified

Caster simplifies the payment process by managing the flow of money between publishers and journalists.
