Events

We accept proposals for workshops, classes, and event ideas on a rolling basis via this form. All workshops, classes, and event ideas should be oriented toward the freelancing community and fall within our designated areas of interest: freelancing 101 skills, contracts and legal issues for freelancers, networking and community building, health and wellness, finances and budgeting or more niched/industry specific topics. Apply to teach a workshop.

Since we are located in NYC, all of our events are Eastern Time. Be sure to take that in account if you are not local.

We record many but NOT ALL of our events. Some events may contain sensitive information of our members, so to ensure a safe environment those events are not recorded. Other events may not be recorded due to the request of our facilitators.

Yes, we still send any recordings, presentations or handouts to any of our members who have signed up for that event.
