The Business of Freelancing – Tim Harper – Room 442
If you don’t conduct your freelance career like a business, it’s not. It’s a hobby. Longtime freelancer Tim Harper, a J-School Craft professor and writing coach, offers tips and explanations — and inspiration — on various aspects of running a freelance writing business: marketing yourself and your work, negotiating contracts, record-keeping, taxes (and deductions) and more. He’ll talk about what to do to get the most out every story, including the small piece that goes viral overnight to the big book that will take years.
