La conférence @guildedesplumes a bel et bien commencé. Je partagerais ici mes impressions. (Et si vous trouvez des erreurs linguistiques, vous pouvez les garder… 😜) #plumesparis
C’est Alexandra Fresse-Eliazord que commence le partage : Quand ton discours est beau, mais l’orateur ne l’a même pas lu… 😢
Très bon conseil d’Alexandra : Ne copiez pas simplement les chiffres, travaillez-les, faites-les raconter une histoire.

Welcome to the #passivewriter chat! I'm @browndamon with my co-author @ByJeanetteHurt, and we're authors of The Passive Writer: 5 Steps to Earning Money in Your Sleep: amzn.to/2OnTVvU
#passivewriter We're long-time #freelance #journalists & #authors who have found ways to create new methods to bring in money while we aren't working. So much of our work was one-and-done. We did an @ASJAhq NY panel in May and wanted to expand the discussion
#passivewriter How do you define #passiveincome? @ByJeanetteHurt & I discovered it is different for everyone. For me, it is getting #money based on past work with little or no effort. It also means expanding on what you naturally do.

The 4th freelancer in our #WPFD18 series is Ukrainian photographer Alena Grom. Born in Donetsk, a city controlled by pro-Russian separatists since 2014, Alena fled with her family to live in Kyiv. Her work focuses on children living in conflict zones and refugees in her country
Alena took this photo last spring in Marinka, a badly damaged city on the front-line of the armed conflict in Donbass. “The girl's name is Nastya,” the freelancer said. “She lives with her family, including her little sister, near military positions." [1/4]
“Their whole home is littered with fragments from bombings. While I was shooting, I could hear automatic fire and explosions behind their garden. I was shocked: neither the children nor the parents reacted to the shelling." [2/4]

Day 3 of our #WorldPressFreedomDay series on the working lives of #freelancers worldwide - today we're sharing insights from freelance investigative journalist Mabvuto Banda, who lives and works in Malawi. Follow this thread across the day to hear about his experiences
The climate for journalists in #Malawi has improved over the last 15 years. Nonetheless Mabvuto has been arrested on numerous occasions during his twenty-year career in #journalism. In Malawi, a law still provides for the imprisonment of anyone who 'insults' the head of state.
Mabvuto said of the photo above: “This is me with reporters in the #newsroom. We were working on a story about the growing calls within the ruling party to push the current President to stand down." [1/2]

For the second day of our #WPFD18 series exploring behind the scenes of freelancers at work in regions across the world, we'll be sharing insights from freelance photographer César Rodríguez in Mexico - a country that ranks 147th of 180 on @RSF_inter's World Press Freedom Index
Freelancer César Rodríguez was born in the western Mexican state of Nayarit, where he took this photo: “This was in a living room in a house in Tepic, Nayarit, where a clash between armed civilians and the navy took place." [1/2]
"At least five people died, and it’s believed that other armed civilians escaped. I chose this image because when I see it, it reminds me of places where people are at war – "official" wars – and it reminds me that here in #Mexico we have our own war as well.” [2/2]
