But how do you get that first piece published in a national publication? This book shows you the techniques that real freelancers use to sell their ideas and get into print.

Professional freelancer Catherine Quinn, who built a successful freelance career from scratch, guides you through a step-by-step process to get your first article in print, from how to format your pitch, to identifying the undersold freelance hotspots.
