The Future of Freelancing:

Redefining Journalism.

Reinventing Yourself.

June 18-19, 2010

Stanford University

Future of Freelance - One Year Later Conference Overview

120 successful freelancers and 50 top editors, agents and experts met at Stanford for two days to talk about the changing market for great writing. The results: A thought-provoking new collection of knowledge about the economics of writing, the increasingly vital role of the independent journalist, the impact of technology on publications, and the future of storytelling.

This site will now host video, audio and write-ups from the conference, as well as articles, links and discussions following up on ideas sparked by the sessions. My hope is that this site will provide ongoing support and inspiration for the new networks of writers launched by this very special event.
