Synopses & Reviews
Unlike the mass of freelance writing books aimed at readers who fondly hope to become wealthy freelance writers any which way they can, Freelance Wiling: Breaking In Without Selling Out
is for educated people whose primary motivation for trying to get into print is the wish to effectively communicate their ideas, skills and discoveries in appropriate publications. Few books are directed to the potential writer who wants to follow his or her own path. If fulfilling your sense of responsibility to your subject, to your audience, and to yourself is important to your satisfaction as a writer, Marcia Yudkin's concise and sensible handbook is for you.
Since receiving her Ph.D. in Philosophy from Cornell, Marcia Yudkin has taught at Smith College and the University of Massachusetts, and has published fiction and nonfiction in Art Times, Yankee, the New York Times, Psychology Today, the Boston Globe, Ms., the Village Voice and other periodicals. She is the author of Making Good: Private Business in Socialist China and coauthor of the American Philosophical Association's Guidebook for Publishing Philosophy.
