So your newspaper has cut its staff and you're one eof the victims. Or you see cutbacks in the future and want to prepare for the inevitable. Or you have a story to write that nobody's interested in publishing at your day job. So how do you go about freelancing? Experts offered advice on pitching ideas, shaking off newspaper habits to write analytically, and thinking broadly about the types of publications that might be interested in your skills. David McKay Wilson, formerly with the The Journal News in New York, is a successful freelancer; Scholastic editor Dana Truby, Kevin Carey of Education Sector, and Sue De Pasquale, who edits magazines for Johns Hopkins University, and Jane Karr, editor of the New York Times Education Life, all hire freelancers. They'll show you the ropes of what might be an interesting sideline, or your next career. This session was moderated by EWA’s public editor Linda Perlstein.
