Freelance Writing

Presented by: Nackey S. Loeb School of Communications

Think you have a great idea for a news story or magazine feature but can’t figure out how to get it published? In this freelance workshop, writers learn how to target publications that use freelance work regularly, how to approach editors successfully, how to structure writing pieces to meet the publication’s needs and how to advance onto bigger and better publications. Balancing multiple assignments, determining how much to charge and ensuring you are paid also are discussed. Writers receive links to online resources used by full-time freelancers to find work and receive freelance dos and don’ts from a New Hampshire magazine editor.

Beth LaMontagne Hall is a former City Hall reporter for the New Hampshire Union Leader. She also worked as a full-time freelance writer for publications including Yankee Magazine; Politics Magazine in Washington, DC; The Associated Press; and the Portsmouth Herald.
