Mediabistro Writers: Under what circumstances would you write for free? (via @TheAtlanticWire)

twitter@AndyMedici The same circumstances where bankers bank for free, doctors practice for free and lawyers litigate for free.

twitter@c_gonzalez Self-promotion, blogging, or on spec for a paying position. Sometimes passion, but passion alone doesn't pay rent.

twitterGayla Galbraith Jeppesen I write free for a charity that's dear to my heart. I also write for myself, as it sounds like the author of this article does.

twitterMatt Phillion For my own personal fiction projects, which is more like "spec' than free. Otherwise never. Sadly, the best advice on this topic came from the Joker: "If you're good at something, never do it for free."

twitterKim Olson I don't, because it doesn't just hurt me. It also hurts other writers.
