YPG Bay Area: Be Your Own Boss: How to Successfully Freelance in Publishing
Create your own hours, hand pick your projects, and do work you love—freelancing in publishing sounds like a dream come true! With the added benefits of potential extra income and deciding your own work locale, it’s no wonder more and more publishing professionals are going the freelance route (either as a full-time career or as a bonus side job).
Join us at our panel discussion to hear from freelancing experts in the areas of editing, design, and publicity, discuss the skills and strategies necessary to be successful, and learn how they got started down the path to freelancing.
Whether you’re considering making it on your own, looking to pick up some projects on the side, or wanting to learn more about working with freelancers, join us!
