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.
