Classrooms to Careers: From Life at York to Life as a Freelance Writer
Nov 1, 2012, 1pm-3pm
For aspiring writers, it can feel daunting to go from the structure of school life to the semi-unstructured world of freelance work. Is the freelance life right for you? What's the market like for writers and editors in 2013? How do you break into the online market? Is it really possible to achieve work/life balance today? What kinds of writing jobs are out there?
Meet and get advice from York alumna, Sandy Braz (BA English/Communications, 2003), Freelance Writer and Producer, who started her career as a student editor at the Excalibur a decade ago. Today she is a full time writer for magazines, newspapers and blogs in North America and Europe on health, fitness and travel. She is currently working on a documentary on the subject of acceptance.
This workshop is being offered as part of Classrooms to Careers, a new three-day workshop series being launched during Fall Co-Curricular Days (Wednesday October 31 - Friday November 2, 2012).
Registration is required. You may register for this event on the Career Centre's online system (you must sign up for an account before you will be able to register for any events on the system).
