How I landed the gig: I participated with my first ASJA Virtual Pitch Session in July 2017. I was on stand-by and then, and since another confirmed writer didn't show up for their spot, I got a chance to pitch!
Net result (money earned; placement, etc): $350, with the potential for more work
Comments about ASJA: I first learned about ASJA when I was starting my freelance writing business in 2009. At the time, I didn't qualify for membership. I wanted in! One of the motivations for landing certain markets and bylines was to build up enough credentials to be eligible for membership. That finally happened in 2013. I love the annual conference, monthly Shop Talks, the VPS opportunities, and all of the other benefits the organization works so hard to offer members. I intend to be a member for life! more
