Editcetera director Barbara Fuller will lead this discussion of opportunities for freelancers who want to work with words in the San Francisco Bay Area. What kinds of jobs exist? What are possible sources of work, where can you find out about openings, and how can you make yourself stand out among the many freelancers competing for work?

The evening will begin with a formal presentation and tips for increasing your workload. An informal question-and-answer session and discussion will follow for participants who choose to stay. Handouts will provide you with resources for follow-up depending on your interests and needs; specific job leads will not be provided.
