Whether you're looking for a new assignment or a new client, The Walkley Foundation's Storyology (10-13th August, Chauvel, Sydney) is an event not to miss.
This year at Storyology we've added a half-day on August 10 just for freelancers. And because we know freelancing can be tough on the budget we've added two different price options.
- Freelance half-day pass: $190, includes networking drinks afterward
- Storyology single-day passes: $300
Plus Newsmodo subscribers get a further 20% discount on their Storyology ticket - enter the code NEWSMODO. This code expires August 5!
Featuring speakers from the international and local media industry, Storyology is an unparalleled opportunity to learn from veteran storytellers and hear how to innovate in your work.
Some session highlights:
- A keynote from the intrepid Yaara Bou Melhem on safety, training, resources and more about how to make it as an international freelancer.
- Freelancers Geraldine Cremin and Alana Schetzer with experts from the Copyright Agency and Media Super detailing opportunities (and funding methods) that are emerging for freelancers.
- Cremin will also introduce you to Hostwriter, a new site aiming to connect freelancers worldwide whether they're looking for reporting assistance or a spare couch.
