The Freelance mailing list is a discussion list for publishing industry freelancers, hosted on the Yahoo Groups free mailing list server. Those currently on the list include editors, proofreaders, indexers, writers, desktop publishers, photographers, graphics design professionals, typesetters, and those in other lines of work. Topics of discussion include publisher comparisons, job searches, types of work; rates and (non)payments; insurance and taxes; home offices, equipment and useful software; and dealing with children while working.
Basically, anything work-related is worth discussing.
