2:00 – 4:00 pm MT
During this Best Practices & Ethics for Freelance Writers panel, writers will learn from a seasoned panel, including Maclean’s staff writer Jason Markusoff, editors Rachel Giese of Xtra Magazine and Steven Sandor of Edify. Moderated by full-time freelance journalist Omar Mouallem, the conversation will cover best practices and ethics for emerging and experienced writers alike, with ample time for Q&A.
Classes are held via Zoom with Closed Captioning features enabled through auto-transcription technology. A teaching assistant will be present to correct transcription mistakes and assist in other ways. The course includes workshops and class discussions, thus students are required to participate through audio; accommodations can be made for people with speaking or other disabilities if they inform us ahead of schedule. Video is encouraged for all students in order to optimize everyone’s virtual classroom experience.
