Hey, it’s my summer events for freelancers

July 10th, 2009

I have two events coming up that may be of interest. The Seattle media party this Tuesday could use a volunteer to greet people/hand out name tags at the door in case anyone’s interested (great way for shy people and new writers to meet the writers, editors, and other seasoned media peeps in attendance). If so, leave me a comment or send me an email; thanks! Also note that the rate for the Creative Freelance Conference goes up by $50 after July 15.

    Hi Michelle,

    I would love to help greet people and hand out name tags!

    I’m in the very early stages of my shiny new freelance career (portfolio building!) so I’ve never been to an industry event. This sounds like a great opportunity for a shy young thing like myself :)

    This is something I would attend if I weren’t housebound, mostly bedridden and on the east coast…

    Also, I don’t know why, I really find nametags annoying. One teacher workshop too many? But of all people, I should be in favor of them.

    What’s your name again…?
