Another entry in the monthly column, The Freelance Life, by Ethan Gilsdorf, about the trials, tribulations, triumphs --- and tips to share --- along the path to becoming a freelance writer.

The “Post” Post

[Another entry in the ongoing blog "Would We Lie To You?: News from the Non-Fiction Career Lab"]

by Deborah L. Blicher

The Non-Fiction Career Lab ended with a class reading on May 29th, so I am writing this post-graduation.

After a year of meeting weekly with my intelligent, talented lab partners and teachers, I feel inspired to set myself up as a freelancer. I'll write feature stories! Pitch paying markets! Write essays! Submit to literary magazines I'd only dreamed about! But where to start?
