Group Description

Since 2003, Upod has been a place for freelancers to support, inspire, amuse, inform, advise, celebrate and hire each other.

Why UPOD? It's a nod to my guiding principle as a professional writer: Under Promise, Over Deliver.

Upod Academy (www.upodacademy) was as a natural extension of Upod's social media presence. Since 2011, the classes and events offered through "PodCad" have turned everyday freelancers into freelance superheroes. Weekend and evening classes cover everything from selling your first story to cracking the media A-list.

I'm your host, David Hochman (www.davidhochman.com)

Consider opting for the 'daily digest' so you're not flooded with emails.

There is zero tolerance for incivility on the Pod.

No announcements for classes or workshops, or recruiting members for other groups or lists, without permission, thanks.

Upod is not a forum for spammers, advertising without consent, press release blasts or negativity.

Please use the following category lead-ins:

[Intro]: Introducing yourself to the pod.
[Jobs]: Employment leads, job queries.
[Link]: Sites, curiosities, internet godsends.
[Origins]: The story behind a story you've had published
[Rave]: Praise, shrines to writers, epiphanies, joy.
[PodBiz]: Suggestions, gripes, praise for UPOD itself.
[PodMind]: A higher-minded QuickSeek. For bigger ideas, deeper questions.
[Qs4]: Questions for, as in "I need questions for this person I'm interviewing."
[QuikSeek]: Need editor contacts? Quotable brain scientists? Quick unGooglables?
[PodCad]: Info about The Upod Academy's classes, workshops and events

You can also follow us on Twitter @davidhochman or @upodeditorial or the Upod Facebook page.

Thanks for visiting and happy Podding!
