2 July, 2008

Freelance Writing

I’m talking job-postings–you know they go something like this

“We’re looking for rock star editors and writers–only candidates with excellent communication and superstar word savvy, please.”

Give me a break: what they’re really looking for is someone young and dumb enough to think that on any writing job they’ll be considered a rock star with very un-superstar pay, or “no compensation,” period. Wow, notoriety….
