The American Society of Journalists and Authors (ASJA) is a national organization comprised of published independent nonfiction writers. The newly created Portland chapter of ASJA meets on the third Wednesday of the month to discuss and hosts speakers on the business, marketing and craft aspects of being a working writer. Find out more about the organization at www.asja.org.
More markets for writers are using online collaboration platforms and tools to manage projects and workflow, forcing freelancers to learn how to use them, like it or not. At the April 17th meeting, ASJA Portland chapter member and veteran tech writer Michelle Rafter will give a demo of one of these platforms, Trello. Her presentation will include basics on the platform, and examples of how writers use it as part of client teams, and to organize their own time and clips.
