Although we mentioned it earlier in the week, here’s a friendly reminder: Until midnight tonight, when you buy any Mediabistro class, you’ll get a free webcast! All you have to do is use the promo code WEBCAST at checkout.

We figure you may want to check out Develop Your Freelance Career. The class covers basic freelancing skills such as creating ideas to pitching them. In fact, by the end of the course students will create two pitch letters and a list of well-crafted salable story ideas.

Course objectives include the following:

  • Come up with salable freelance ideas
  • Find the best publication to target your pitch
  • Write compelling pitches and communicate with editors
  • Maintain relationships with editors to secure long-term work
  • Track your freelance expenses, ensure timely payments, and submit invoices
