I’ll be moderating a panel on Friday evening for the Boston chapter of the National Writers Union on how writers can make a living in an era of free online content. The panelists — truly an all-star group — are:
- Lisa Williams of Placeblogger.com
- Zach Seward of the Nieman Journalism Lab
- Topper Carew, a television producer and Writers Guild member
- Felicia Sullivan of the Organizers’ Collaborative
- Jason Pramas of the National Writers Union and Open Media Boston
With a crew like that, I shouldn’t have to do much more than introduce them and get out of the way.
The program will be held from 7 to 9:30 p.m. at Northeastern’s John D. O’Bryant African-American Institute*, one of the co-sponsors. Other co-sponsors are PEN New England, Grub Street, Open Media Boston, the Women’s National Book Association and the Organizers’ Collaborative.
The Friday panel kicks off the two-day event, titled “Shall We Write for Free or Shall We Write for Pay? Writers Face the Digital Age.” For more information and to register, click here. Please join us.
