Places available: 80

We are all trapped in our little bubbles. PRs in agencies, journalists writing into a single editor all day long. As a result, we all have little snapshots of the bigger picture of tech journalism.
But there is another group who get a more comprehensive view. Freelancers find themselves constantly in motion between different publishers, juggling different agencies, different topics. They gain a perspective that most of us simply can’t access.
For this year’s PRCA Technology “Future of Tech Journalism” event, we will be talking with a handful of the top tech freelancers in the industry to find out:
- How have they seen tech journalism change?
- What can we learn from the freelance perspective and will it become more common?
- Will more journalists take the freelance route and why/ why shouldn’t they?
- What do we as PR people need to learn to work more effectively with freelancers?
