What type of freelance writing are you looking to do? Calling and making a connection is an option.

Thanks Taneisa. I'm wondering about what types of marketing efforts people have made in commercial freelancing? My mentor highly recommends cold calling...

Hi Gail, Good Morning. It looks like there hasn't been much activity lately. However, if you have something that you want to share or a question feel free to do so. You'll get some comments.

I met a POET...
Please meet him, too!

"My reasons for choosing Vishwas Vaidya for my first interview are vast; on the one hand his poems have the power to make me dig inside my heart and bring to surface answers for many spiritual questions which can arise during a life time. On the other hand, I had chosen him because he is an engineer exactly like me, and he decided to write poems, as I decided to become a writer. And I have some more reasons related with the country in which he resides in: India".

Author of You Want Me to Do WHAT? Journaling for Caregivers

Comment by Lucille Joyner on May 13, 2013 at 12:34pm

I didn't even remember the contest until I got the call from the editor of Catharsis Journal, a new Memoir publication. She called to let me know that I had come in second, that my article would be published in their first edition, I would get two free copies, $250, a letter of congratulations, an author's contract, and a certificate suggesting my achievement. The subject asked for was Creativity, How It Changed My Life. My Memoir was entitled, Writing, Another Form of Music. Perhaps one of you will write a Memoir for their next contest.

"Great essay, Nancy! I do get the feeling that some of these big name "memoirs" are more autobiography - which requires so much less reflection."
