How To Be a Freelance Writer

You're going to the Book Fair, right? If not, then I don't know what to say to you... Except, perhaps, "Go to the Book Fair!" If not for the books, then at least to attend Trouble-Free Freelancing, which is all about, and I quote, "How to Succeed at Freelance Writing with power freelancers Luis Katigbak, Erwin Romulo and others." Yup, we're giving away all the secrets, including all the dark rituals involving limerick chanting, unemployed editors as human sacrifices, and fatted calves (mine; I really need to exercise).

It's happening on Sunday, September 14, 2008, 4:30 to 6 PM, at the Manila International Book Fair, at Meeting Room 4, SMX Convention Center, SM Mall of Asia. And then it's happening again, same time and place, but on the day after, Monday. The second session will be even better, because then we'll be joined by the lovely and talented Yvette Tan. Yihee!

So many great events to go to. Later tonight at The Podium, 8 PM, is Drip's last gig for 2008, since lead singer Beng is gloriously pregnant and will be taking a break for a while, 'til about March of next year. (The gig also doubles as a baby shower, for those inclined to gift-giving.)

And then tomorrow, at the Book Fair, is the launch of my brilliant award-winning cousin Mookie Katigbak's first collection of poetry, The Proxy Eros, from Anvil Publishing, around 3 PM. Congrats Mookie! :D Afterwards there's the opening of Frailty at Cubao X, around 7 PM, a must-go-to for fans of the visually arresting. Starring Bernie Sim! Lala Gallardo! Cynthia Bauzon-Arre! And many many more! :D


CORRECTION: Our Book Fair talk/s are at 3:00 PM, not 4:30. Apologies. We were just informed of the mix-up yesterday, right before we went to the Fair.

Will the tanscript of your talk/seminar be available here?

Luis K. said...

Hi Henry! I don't think so; I won't be recording or transcribing the talk myself. Am not sure if the organizers (or any of the participants) intend to do so, however.

I'll probably write about the experience for my column though. :)

The book fair completely slipped my mind.

How was your talk/ what'd you buy?

Luis K. said...

Bea! :) The talk went well. I think people had fun, and, more importantly, learned how much they were being underpaid by clients. ;p

Doing the same talk twice in a row was strange though, especially when I would find myself cracking the same joke from the day before. Must be how stand-up comics feel.

Got a bunch of books, all for about P99. The latest William Gibson, "The Areas of My Expertise," Butch Dalisay's Barfly collection, etc. :)
