10G: Improve Your Freelance Game
Limited Capacity seats available

Freelance writing can be hard, but also a gratifying and a fulfilling career path for a writer. In this session, we'll discuss how to find freelance jobs, how to pitch essays and features, how to use your network, and how to make freelancing workable for you.

Through writing exercises and discussion, we'll discuss pitching, identifying and pursuing writerly topics you care about, and the practical concerns of managing timelines and budgets. This workshop is open to writers of all levels, and is especially geared toward writers of color and underrepresented writers who may not have considered freelance writing as a viable career choice.
