Event description

Description

Looking to further your freelance career? Want to meet editors who commission freelance work?

Join SPJ Georgia on Saturday, April 27, at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution headquarters to speak with editors from across metro Atlanta. You'll be able to meet one-on-one with editors for 10 minutes each to talk through pitches, learn about publications' freelancing policies, anything you want!

Publications slated to attend include Atlanta Magazine, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, The Bitter Southerner, WebMD, Atlanta INtown and Reporter Newspapers, Georgia Voice, Georgia Public Broadcasting, Game & Fish, the Atlanta Jewish Times, Cobb County Courier, West Georgia Living, and Jezebel and Modern Luxury Weddings Atlanta. Closer to the event, a complete list of publications will be sent to registered attendees so you can plan questions and pitches.

All registered attendees will be able to sign up for editors in advance of the event, but SPJ Georgia members will have sign-up access before non-members. Please be sure to purchase a ticket on Eventbrite; we will not accept cash or credit cards at the door.

We will also have learning sessions during the job fair, free for attendees. All topics and instructors will be announced, but current sessions are:

  • How to increase mental focus, taught by Avril Loy James, an exercise physiologist, yoga instructor, and certified public health educator

  • The business of freelancing, taught by Keith Herndon, director of the James M. Cox Jr. Institute and professor of practice in journalism at the University of Georgia

  • The art of interviewing, taught by Eric Stirgus, education reporter for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution

The $20 event cost includes a 30-minute snack break. Door prizes will be given at the end of the event.
