April 02, 2016

As full-time staff positions become more scarce (and more stressful), many editors are exploring their freelance options. Christy Karras, a former newspaper and magazine staff writer and editor, will share what she and fellow former staffers have learned as they've made the transition from salaried employment to freelance editing. She'll discuss how to find a niche, whether and when to seek continuing education, how to find clients, and the basics of setting up your freelance business.
