The Professional Freelancer, Anna Codrea-Rado
Anna Codrea-Rado is a freelance journalist who's written for a number of established titles, including The New York Times, The Guardian, VICE, The Paris Review, New York Magazine, WIRED, plus many more.
Anna Codrea-Rado curates The Professional Freelancer, a weekly newsletter about “making a sustainable living as a freelancer,” and regularly features opportunities to secure work. Whatever you’re going through as a freelancer, it’s pretty likely Anna has gone through it herself – so this newsletter is great if you want to feel a part of a wider community. Expect to see it in your inbox every Friday without fail, containing a mixed bag of treats – including a well-written response to an array of freelance questions and problems, from getting paid on time to what to do if you’re experiencing a freelance lull, plus it includes commissioned opportunities, curated links and occasional pictures of Anna’s dog, Dolly.
Considering Anna is a well-established journalist, it’s also a brilliant resource for when you find yourself in a tricky situation with a client, or when you’re deliberating over increasing your rates – and of course, the tax slump.
