ENGL 0342 - The Freelancer

Credits: 3

This hands-on course will examine the craft and business of freelance writing. We'll consider a spectrum of freelance opportunities, from interviews to editing, develop writer's platforms and social media presence, set up accounting and submissions systems, learn about contracts, write and submit query letters, and write non-fiction work with the goal of paid publication. Throughout the semester, we will pose critical questions about the role of freelancers in our culture.
