Are you thinking of making the move to freelance work? Unsure where to get started, or are you an experienced consultant looking for tools to simplify or improve your workflow? Come along to our June meetup.

One thing we do know is that freelancers, the self-employed, consultants, and the like tend to duplicate a lot of our efforts. We want to pool our resources to make independent workers more successful, faster.

At the start of June, Catherine and Deborah took part in a day-long collaborative project at the Write the Docs conference in Vilnius, pulling together resources and guidance for freelance technical writers. In this event, we present these resources, and lead a discussion to draw out more ideas.

The format of this event is discussion-based. Come along and share your own experiences of freelance and consultancy work.

Note: if you sign up to this event, please make sure you let us know in advance if you have to cancel so we can plan for numbers. Thanks!
