I’m pleased to present the 27th edition of the Business of Freelance Writing Carnival. Before letting you at the posts, I wanted to say a word or two about how I choose posts to include. Anyone can submit a post through Blog Carnival — and plenty of people do. But I don’t include every post that is submitted. There are some that are little more than spam, generally doing nothing but promoting some product with no relationship to writing or business. Those are tossed out immediately.
Every week, there are a few posts that are essentially writing samples — poetry, short stories and the like. When I started hosting this carnival, I made a decision not to include that sort of post. There are plenty of great carnivals out there (Just Write, Everything Worth Reading, and the Creative Carnival are all good options) that showcase that sort of post. Around here, we focus a little more on what to do after you’ve written a great story or article — how to make sure your writing translates into a living.
If you’d like to submit a post or two for the 28th edition, you can do so at Blog Carnival. With no further ado, the carnival!
