Chicago-Area Freelancers, Freelancing Panel on Wednesday, May 28th (and I'll be on the Panel)



Are you a freelancer in the Chicago area who wants to make more money--or are you considering becoming a freelance writer? Then you'll want to attend this panel sponsored by the Association for Women Journalists and ASJA. (I'll be there and will have copies of Six-Figure Freelancing: The Writer's Guide to Making More Money, Second Edition on hand--come and get your own signed copy!) 

"How to be a Freelancer and Still Pay the Rent: Tips from the Trenches on Expanding into New Markets" will include a panel discussion featuring freelancers (including me!) who will share their successes and setbacks, plus offer advice on how to break into a wide variety of writing markets beyond mainstream and trade journalism. I'm looking forward to participating and to hearing the other panelists' tips--I plan to come home with a slew of ideas and ideas I can immediately put to you, and think you'll be able to do so, too! 

Here are the details:
