Champion Of Underpaid Business Freelancers Offering Freelancing Class, Free

Did we say “free” too many times in that headline? At any rate, Maya Payne Smart, who late last year lamented how underpaid freelance business reporters were* is leading a free online class to teach freelancers how to make more money.

Sales Strategies for Freelance Business Journalists, offered through the Reynolds Center for Business Journalism, takes place online Aug. 16-19.

It is free and will include a panel discussion with editors who hire freelance journalists. The content is aimed at business journalists but we suspect freelancers in other disciplines may learn something as well.

*Many freelancers–not just business writers–are underpaid, but you’d think that people who write about money all day would know how to make some.
