Featuring freelance medical writers, Kathryn White and Steph Carter. Recorded as a MedComms Networking webinar. Produced by NetworkPharma.tv
In this webinar we’re joined by Kathryn White, author of our careers guide, “Making it my own business: a guide to being a freelance writer in MedComms” along with Steph Carter who has contributed her personal profile story to the latest edition. We’ll talk about how MedComms is an area that offers experienced medical writers the opportunity to ‘go it alone’, with plenty of variety in terms of the type of projects and therapeutic areas. However, working as a freelancer means running a business. It’s not enough to simply be a good writer. You’ll also be responsible for sales, marketing, IT support, training, finance and more. And these are particularly challenging times. So, what does it take to be a successful freelance medical writer? And we answer questions from the audience.
It should be of interest to anyone working in and around MedComms, but in particular to anyone who has already taken the leap into freelancing or is about to do so.
