Gearing up for ScienceWriters 2010

Great news! My panel on “Profitable Freelancing: Starting a business and keeping it productive,” was accepted for ScienceWriters 2010, Nov. 5-9 at Yale University in New Haven, CT. I’ll be joined on the stage by freelancers Christopher Mims, John Pavlus, and Amber Dance. From the panel description:

Freelance writers wear many hats: Writer and editor; CEO and employee; treasurer and accountant. Your job: Fill each role as efficiently as possible to maximize time in Writer (read: money-making) mode. You’ll need to be productive. There’s no shortage of advice out there, so you’ve got to be selective: Narrow focus on productivity can be, well, counterproductive. This panel will address workable productivity ‘hacks’ freelancers can implement, both online and off, to establish and sustain their freelance business with maximal efficiency and minimal fuss.

This workshop will include both a panel discussion and audience Q&A. An online survey, conducted in advance of the meeting, will inform the conversation, and tips and tricks from both the presenters and the audience will be made available to the community-at-large via a blog specifically set up for this session.

I hope to see you this November in New Haven. In the meantime, follow the panelists at Freelancer Hacks, the blog of “Productivity hacks by hacks, for hacks.”
