In 2013, Kate Haigh (Kateproof) hosted a Q&A with several editorial freelancing colleagues (including me) to find out how things were going, what their goals were and how they envisaged their futures. Now, in 2016, she's revisited those same colleagues to see what's changed and what's stayed the same: The middle years – questions and answers.
You can read the individual freelancers' responses to Kate's questions, but she's also provided a really useful overview of the middle years of editorial business ownership, based on her own thoughts and the insights provided by her colleagues.
