One of my favorite things about Fast Horse is our biweekly Spark Sessions, where we hear from colleagues and industry experts about their professional journeys. We hear words of wisdom and memorable career highlights and it’s always enriching. In a shocking turn of events, I was asked to give a Spark Session last week about working with media and being a freelance writer, which is something I’m so grateful that Fast Horse is supportive of.
One thing I talked about during my session is Twitter. I love to follow journalists, freelancers, and media outlets to learn about what they’re working on and how I can help, either from a PR or freelance perspective. It’s often on Twitter that I’ll hear about a story someone is working on or a need they have for extra support, and it’s also been a great resource for learning about editors who might be great to work with in the future.
I figured I’d share my favorite people to follow on Twitter, in case it’s helpful for anyone else working with media.
My handle is @allisonpduncan in case you want to check out who I’m following there!
