Bloomberg News, Law360 Writers Headline Freelancer Meetup Hosted By ProfNet And Contently

NEW YORK,, March 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- If sourcing a story is like casting a movie, experts are like celebrities. They can impart gravity and credibility and eloquence that the facts can't on their own. They can boost ticket sales.

But it's easier said than done. Subject-matter experts, like celebrities, don't pick up the phone for everyone. But good reporters know when and how to work the phones and email to put top sources in their stories. This month, the Freelance Writers Meetup, co-hosted by Contently and ProfNet, will explore the art of finding and working with expert sources.

In this meetup, attendees will learn to identify the strongest sources, evaluate their level of knowledge, and connect with hard-to-find experts. The group will also explore using anonymous sources, managing sources, and the role of editors.

This event is targeted at journalists and writers -- both full-time and freelance -- who are interested in telling better stories through experts. Veteran journalists are especially encouraged to attend, both to learn something new and to share the wisdom of their experiences.
