Each month, the Freelance Writers Meetup invites a writer to discuss his or her story and offer advice for freelance writers of all stripes.
This month, we're excited to be discussing the world of travel writing with New York Times Travel editor Dan Saltzstein and editor-in-chief of The Expeditioner, Matt Stabile.
Dan brings his experience from a traditional publishing background at The Times and Matt juxtaposes that point of view with his new media.
If you're interested in learning about making it as a travel writer, please join us for this discussion. Pizza and drinks included!
RSVP now, tell all of your writer friends, and meet us at Contently HQ for pizza and a lively discussion.
