I spent all day Saturday — the warmest, sunniest day Oregon has seen all month — inside at the Oregon Press Women’s spring seminar. Luckily, the windows in our upstairs ballroom opened to let in fresh air.
The seminar asked four speakers to share their ideas on the future of writing and journalism, which ranged from changes in grammar and usage to newspapers in an Internet age. More importantly, I met other women who have been freelance journalists for much longer than I have, and they have no intention of quitting or retiring, either. Two years down, thirty or forty to go (if I’m not run over and killed by a silent EV before then).
