lrkilian – 2009-10-02 1:35 PM Hey guys, I’m new to the freelancing profession and I’m unsure how to make a nice, shiny writer resume. I mean, a really kick-butt, that’s our girl writer resume. Any suggestions or examples? I’m really over my current content job and am ready for more stuff. Also, big question: How do you tell prospective employers that your on spec articles have been accepted but not published yet? I’ve got lot of stuff on spec that was accepted by magazines but who knows when it’ll finally go into print. I’m never sure how to let people know about it without sounding like I’m making it up. Thank you so much!
Listing the names of the magazines who have accepted your work for publication would add to your credibility. For a children’s writer, for example, acceptances by literary magazines such as Cricket or Highlights for Children would immediately catch the interest of any children’s magazine editor.
