The Business of Freelancing

  • December 6 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Loading Events

Get published, get paid, and make freelancing your business.

Class meets 6:30-8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, December 6.

The cost for this workshop is $25. Register here.

If you do freelance writing or producing and you don’t treat it like a business, you have a hobby. Nothing wrong with that, but to get the most out of your freelancing, whether full-time or part-time, you need to be organized and have a systemic approach to get the most out of your work — both financially and in terms of satisfaction and career advancement.

This breezy, conversational two-hour workshop is both an introduction for beginning freelancers and a top-up review for longtime veterans. Bring your questions and issues on every aspect of freelancing, from ideas to reporting to contracts and rights to pitching, publishing and getting paid.

What to Bring: Attendees will bring a laptop if you want to follow along or take notes. 

Level: Beginner to Intermediate
