Building Your Freelancer Brand: Pitch Editors, Tell Stories, Get Paid

Freelancers without institutional affiliation rely on editors to survive, but are often working blind about what they look for and how they field pitches. Learning how to structure a pitch, how much to research, ways to build relationships and tips for negotiating rates can make all the difference.

This session is designed for:

  • Freelancers looking for a window into editors’ wants and needs
  • Editors interested in improving their relationships with freelancers
  • Wannabe freelancers gathering information before making the plunge
  • Speakers
