Freelance Lunch Report

The Freelance Lunch on 3 April was a great success. It was actually so successful that the original venue couldn't fit us in and we became a moveable feast, travelling 200 metres south-west to the Fitz Cafe. Twenty-four editors settled down for a feed, with some having to be prised out of the booths two hours later and ejected into the street, still talking. It was a great mix of working editors, aspiring editors and students, with the volume of chatter you only get when a bunch of editors meet.

Thanks to everyone who answered the email about desirable times, days and locations for a freelance lunch. The responses were so diverse that it was impossible to please everyone, so we returned to an old haunt. If anyone would like to organise a freelance breakfast (or brunch or dinner) at some other time or place, please contact Fran Madigan, Freelance Affairs Officer.

The next Freelance Lunch will be at the Fitz Cafe, 347 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy (corner of Brunswick and Kerr streets) on Thursday 5 June - so keep the date clear!
