    Being a freelance writer in MedComms

    In this webinar we're joined by Kathryn White, author of "Making it my own business: a guide to being a freelance writer in MedComms", published in April 2020, and also by freelance writer Hannah Bridges, who contributed to that guide.

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 we answer questions from the audience.
