So you want to freelance, maybe part time, maybe full time? Maybe you just got laid off and you’re freaking out. Come hear several panels on how to pitch, where to pitch, how much to charge and how to navigate freelance contracts. There will be three 45-minute panels (followed by Q. and A.) and a practice Pitchapalooza. We’ll have more than a dozen panelists on hand throughout the day to discuss the topic, including freelance writers, copy editors, videographers and more. Pre-registration on members.jaws.org is required.
