While the Freelance Beat is a website that is meant to help journalists who are shifting to a freelancing career, a lot of the tools and resources here are useful for all freelance writers.
The Freelance Beat gives in-depth insights into the triumphs and challenges freelance journalists experience in their early and mid-career.
It was started by Chicago-based freelance journalist, Tatiana Walk-Morris.
She has written for notable publications like The New York Times, Vice Magazine, Harvard University’s Nieman Reports, and More.
On The Freelance Beat she shares lessons on acquiring clients, making sure you put food on the table, dealing with toxic clients and setting up your freelance operation as a proper business.
