Live blog: Becoming a successful freelance journalist
As the news industry continues to shed jobs, freelancing skills have never been more important for prospective journalists. So, what makes a good freelancer? How do you sell your work to different markets, including foreign media? What role does social media play in a freelancer’s career? We get the answers from two freelance journalists: Matt Braga, a former National Post technology reporter, and Andrew Livingstone, a former Toronto Star reporter. Join host Brennan Reid, a Wilfrid Laurier University journalism student, on Thursday, March 27 at 1 p.m. ET for this live chat. Tweet your questions for Braga and Livingstone using #FreelanceChat.
