After what I've read, it is hard to land journalism jobs without having a portfolio. By becoming a member and having my portfolio at clippings.me I hope this will help me land more journalism gigs.
And... you read that correctly! I also became a member of the Society of Authors, the UK union for journalists and authors. Yay! I'm so happy!
