Event mania

November 14th, 2008

I have loads of events scheduled for the next couple of months. In Seattle, I’m hosting mediabistro‘s holiday party for freelance and full-time (and pink-slipped) media professionals, signing books at Urban Craft Uprising, and doing one last book reading at Third Place Books.

In the new year, I’m giving a couple of teleseminars, including one on dealing with hell clients, sponsored by the Freelancers Union. And in February, I’m heading down to San Francisco mid-month for a couple of talks and signings. (I’m open to more Bay Area events if you have something in mind. If so, email me.)

Event details follow. To stay up to date on my events, visit my Events page or subscribe to my mailing list.
