Freelance journalism can reap many rewards, but it takes tenacity, skills, hard work, savvy, flexibility, luck, preparation, and a strong independent spirit. In this session, we'll talk about the freelancing tool kit: finding stories, pitching stories, spreadsheets, invoicing, newsletters, social media, knowing your audience, finding your hustle, and how to learn from mistakes. Gary Moskowitz, freelance journalist/journalism educator/musician
