Somebody Else Says: Interview with Jane Friedman

Just a quick post to link you to an interview that Tad Richards did with Jane Friedman, of Writer’s Digest. The topic is “Writers & the Recession,” something–as worrisome as it is–we should all be keeping up with. Jane doesn’t pull any punches about where she thinks publishing is going, and she always has something interesting to say.

The interview is here.

    Thank you for this post. I’ve been a freelance writer for more than two decades (yikes!) and have never seen the market slow so dramatically. As the article points out, it is truly time to self-reflect, re-examine, and re-invent.

      I’m glad the interview helped. I think it is time to come up with new ways of doing things, or at least trying. And it’s a time to look at/re-examine what we may be saying “no” to.

      Good luck & thanks for stopping by.
