Freelance With Us is a community for freelance writers, founded by an experienced freelancer with equal amounts of respect, love and disdain for the industry. Freelancing is a lonely, often frustrating profession. You have dozens of employers, are always staring into the stern and ugly face of an imminent deadline, and have no one to turn to if it goes wrong. The freelance sites themselves are there to earn a profit and to cater for clients, ensuring they keep putting money and jobs into the system. There is very little attention paid to the freelancers that keep those systems running and those clients happy, and there is little to no support available for them.
That’s the purpose of Freelance With Us. It is a place to learn — both about the clients and the sites — a place to improve your craft and a place to find friends and colleagues. But it’s also a place to vent, because while your family and friends might not understand your pain, your fellow freelancers will.
