Event description

Description

If you're interested in freelancing, wanting to get started or already there and looking to get better established, SPJ Georgia is here to help. Join us Saturday, Aug. 18 at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution headquarters to speak with hiring editors from across Metro Atlanta.

Publications on hand will include the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Reporter Newspapers, Georgia Health News, the AJC's Living Intown and Living Northside magazines, the Atlanta Voice and Jezebel, among others. You'll also have the chance to speak one-on-one with full-time freelance journalists who can share what it's like as an independent writer. Closer to the event, a complete list of publications and editors 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 get to sign up two days prior to non-members. Please be sure to purchase a ticket on Eventbrite; we will not accept cash or credit card at the door.

We will also have learning sessions during the job fair, free for attendees:

10-10:50 a.m.: Accountant Andrew Jordan will teach about the world of self-employment.
11-11:50 a.m.: Up your social media game with career consultant Al Smith.
12:30-1:20 p.m.: Go to a business planning session led by Keith Herndon, director of UGA's James M. Cox Jr. Institute for Journalism Innovation, Management and Leadership.

The cost is just $20 per person and lunch is included. Oh, at the end of the event, you'll have a chance to score free gift cards to Starbucks and other businesses. You must be present in order to win.

We'll see you on Aug. 18!
