Besides the potential it bears and the positive effects for a journalist’s career blogging can have, we will discuss the pitfalls and the risk of writing for free, which sadly is a growing trend in the publishing industry.
The panel includes: Nate Thayer, an investigative journalist who hit a nerve last March when he posted an e-mail exchange with an editor at The Atlantic, who asked him to write an article based on a blog post for free. Max Magee, creator and editor of The Millions, an online magazine covering books, the arts and culture. Magee started The Millions as a blog in 2003 because of his love of literature. It has since grown into a profitable publication that pays its writers. Tam Harbert, an independent journalist who uses her blog to market herself as a freelance writer. Click here to register.
