Seasoned and Exceptional Writer Dan Baum’s Website A Great Resource For Writers

I stumbled upon Dan Baum’s personal website yesterday while catching up on a few hundred blogs I have been neglecting recently and found myself reading for hours. His most recent venture, an account of why he was let go by the New Yorker, is a quick easy read that will help any budding journalist learn to navigate the volatile word of freelance writing, while also providing links to story proposals that were successful. Dan makes sure to claim the proposals in no way are an example of how to write one, but rather a good example of what worked for him. The site also has just about everything he’s written in PDF form, allowing me to catch up and learn from his style and voice.

If you’re a budding writer or just looking for an interesting perspective on freelance writing, I would highly encourage you spend a few minutes checking out his work and blog.
