AUDIO: Marketing Yourself As A Freelancer

If you weren't able to make it to the Society of Professional Journalists National Convention in Chicago last weekend, you missed an outstanding panel discussion on freelance journalism.

The session, entitled "Marketing Yourself As A Freelancer," was packed full of eager journalists, attendance that served as both a testament to the quality of the panelists, as well as to the level of interest writers have in freelancing.

Audio of entire 60-minute session is available here.

The panel was organized and hosted by Wendy Hoke (inset), the immediate past chair of the SPJ National Freelance Committee, and an advocate for independent journalists. Unfortunately, Wendy will no longer be the chair of the committee, but I have no doubt that she will continue to be a strong and effective voice for the growing number of freelance journalists who pay dues to SPJ.

Joining Wendy on the panel were three accomplished freelancers:
John Ettorre, a Cleveland-based writer and editor with more than 20 years of experience in journalism. Ettore's work has appeared in the New York Times and the Christian Science Monitor.

Stephenie Overman, a full-time freelance writer specializing in workplace and health care issues. Overman is also managing editor of Staffing Management magazine.

Sally Lehrman, author of "News In A New America," and an independent journalist specializing in the coverage of health policy, health care and medical technology.
The audio is available here, and when I figure out how to create a podcast, I'll add that as well.
