Really free freelancing guidance
Give yourself a post-Christmas fillip by coming - for free - on Getting Started as a Freelance, the NUJ's day-long seminar that has helped dozens of freelances launch their careers. Yes, free. The NUJ's Training Department has raised some funds that mean that NUJ members, whether freelance already or staff members thinking about freelancing, can come on the course without any payment. Ordinarily the day costs £80, so it's some bargain.
Make a note of the date: 15 January, 10am to 4:30pm. The venue is the NUJ head office, London. You do have to book, so that the Training Department knows how many people are coming in order to magic up a lunch-time meal. Find out more at www.nujtraining.org.uk or book by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. You can book by phone on 020 7843 3730 after 10 January.
