Trent University: Publish and Prosper

Saturday, February 11, 2006
My writing course at Trent University (Peterborough, Ontario) is only a few weeks away, so I thought I'd better start spreading the word:

Publish and Prosper: The Savvy Writer's Guide to Thriving in Today's Freelance Writing Market

This no-nonsense guide to making it as a freelance writer will cover all the basics involved in launching a successful career as a freelance writer: finding magazine, newspaper, and online markets for your work; investigating other profitable sidelines like speaking, consulting, teaching, book writing, and freelance radio or TV work; mastering the strategies that successful freelancers use to market and publicize their businesses; managing relationships with magazine, newspaper and book editors and other writing clients; and dealing with the business aspects of thriving as a freelancer: budgeting, managing income peaks and valleys, dealing with contract negotiations, and handling intellectual property issues.
