News Freelancers Can Use

For all our freelancing friends, we would encourage you to check out a profile of the Freelancers Union in the latest issue of Harvard magazine.  It's a nice introduction to the great work the Union and founder Sara Horowitz (a Harvard Kennedy School grad) do in serving and promoting the interests of the nation's growing independent workforce.

It also happens to prominently feature Gotham, with several quotes from President Dan Gerstein and Gotham friend Greg Lichtenberg (both Harvard College alums) about the challenges freelancers face in today's free agent economy and how the Freelancers Union can help writers and other independent workers navigate them.

Some of our New York writers know the Freelancers Union as a local institution, but it is fast becoming a national organization.  Membership has more than its share of privileges: the Union provides easy access to affordable health insurance, along with with a range of other valuable support services that often are difficult for freelance writers to find.
