In case you missed it last month, the Atlanta Freelance Forum started a new tradition—the Summer Showcase. Meeting attendees were given FIVE minutes to show off their work and introduce themselves to the group.
We had such a big response, a lot people didn’t get a chance to present. That’s why we’re extending it to our July meeting.
Summer Showcase. It’s Like “Show & Tell” for Creative Freelancers.
Show off your latest print campaigns. Your favorite videos. Your photography. Your illustrations. Your website designs. Whatever you’re proud of.
Do you HAVE to present something? No, of course not. But why would you pass up an opportunity like this to show potential colleagues what you can do and possibly connect with future collaborators?
HERE’S HOW IT’S GOING TO WORK:
1. SEND US YOUR STUFF
It can be videos, website screengrabs, PDFs, photo files—whatever you want to present to the group. Also include your name, creative specialty, website URL and email address. Deadline is WEDNESDAY, JULY 10.
2. YOU GET A FIVE MINUTE LIMIT
So only send us what you can present within that time.
3. ANYONE CAN PARTICIPATE—MEMBERS AND NON-MEMBERS
When it comes to looking at great creative, the more the merrier.
4. WE’LL ALSO POST ON OUR WEBSITE—FOR MEMBERS ONLY
It’s an extra perk for our members. If you’ve got a problem with that, feel free to join (C’mon, it’s only 95 bucks a year!).
Send your files to Harry Hayes—firstname.lastname@example.org.
If it’s too big to email, use wetransfer.com (up to 2 GB for free).
Just north of Brookhaven and south of the Perimeter, The Oliver Chamblee (previously Olmsted Chamblee) is a creative living space and new Freelance Forum Sponsor. You’ll love its comfy furniture and casual vibe.
It also features plenty of meeting space, free parking, and is within walking distance of the Chamblee MARTA station.
Free for members. Guests pay $15. Dress: Blue jeans rule. Business attire is okay if you just came from a big meeting with a corporate client. But otherwise, relax.

No atmospheric pressure here! We network and socialize over sandwiches, spreads or pizza, catch up with new and old friends and introduce ourselves to first-time or frequent guests. Then we settle in for the night’s program and its follow-up Q&A.
Our programs always focus on running a creative business more successfully, with topics that address issues like fees, taxes, law, marketing, selling, interpersonal skills, business organization, technology and more. All to help you work smarter, faster, more efficiently and more profitably. So whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been at this for a while, you get no-fluff information tailored to your needs.
So join us for a meeting. Bring your questions. Hear that hot tip or horror story. And of course, share your own!
