In November, the Valley of the Sun chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists presented a seminar titled “Get Freelancing!” on how to make the most of freelancing, whether as a gig worker or full-timer. It went well, attendees had a good time and we shared useful tools and ideas. One participant may have actually landed a cool assignment and new client at the meeting.
The idea was floated for a regularly gathering group to meet to continue to share and grow as they prepare for success at freelance writing and editing. So, the chapter is proud to invite you to meet up with other freelancers at the group’s first gathering:
6 to 8 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 18, 2023
Wildflower Bread Company
7001 N. Scottsdale Road, Scottsdale (click for map)
(Northeast corner, Scottsdale and Indian Bend roads)
- Time for meet and greet
- Participants’ experiences with freelancing and clients
- How to get more freelance work
- How to get better pay for freelancing
- Topics that clients are seeking
- Journalism Ethics Week coming in April
- Ideas from the floor
- Decide upon follow-up meetings and locations
If you would like to be a part of the group and receive further messages about future group activities, sign up for the new list at the Jan. 18 meeting, or email the group’s administrators, Terri Thorson, territ…@cox.net, or Alan Korwin, al…@gunlaws.com, expressing your interest. Terri and Alan will also answer questions.
