Summary

In The Global Freelancer, award-winning journalist Steve Dorsey draws on his own experiences, as well as those of fellow reporters and editors, to instruct aspiring freelancers on all aspects of becoming a foreign correspondent. Topics covered include: delivering successful story pitches, location scouting, navigating foreign work documentation and visa requirements, confronting press freedom restrictions, leveraging digital media opportunities, and the new challenges of reporting from conflict zones safely.

As newspapers and networks are forced to close their overseas bureaus, news organizations are relying more than ever before on freelancers to fill the gap. This book offers the freelance foreign correspondents of tomorrow step-by-step guidance on how to seize these opportunities and make a name in this competitive field. Packed with practical guidance, tips, and anecdotes from working professionals, The Global Freelancer is your gateway to a career in foreign journalism.
