Set Yourself Apart as a Freelance Journalist

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Freelance journalist doesn't have to be a code phrase for unemployed. With newsroom staffs shrinking, there are often more opportunities for freelancing -- if you have the nerve to seize them. Learn how to set yourself apart from the pack of hungry freelancers and how to structure your business for long-term success. This session will address networking and cultivating editors or clients; how to manage your time to earn more and work less; negotiating contracts; opportunities for teaching and consulting; and how blogging and social media can boost your career (or waste your time and energy).
