Using Twitter to Find Work
March 9, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmUSD20
About this Event
Mention Twitter to freelance writers and they’ll either say they love it or they hate it.
But despite it being a dumpster fire, Twitter can also be a great place to find freelance writing work. Editors put out calls for pitches on Twitter, and many writers use those calls to build relationships with editors, which can lead to assignments and, eventually, regular work.
Join Wudan & Jenni, and a panel of guests, to talk about how to maximize use of Twitter to build your freelance business.
