When I decided to start looking for work as a freelance writer I just thought I had to say I was a freelance writer. I forgot about the part where people need to see my work to know I’m a writer and to know what kind of work I can do, like a portfolio.
I just started taking a 6-day class by Elna Cain and today’s lesson was about setting up your portfolio, why you need it, where and how to display it, etc. I thought people could just look at my blog and that’s it, and I guess they can because right now the only way to know I’m trying to work as a freelance writer is through my blog, but I need to do something to get the word out.
I think my LinkedIn profile would be a good place to announce it, as well a Twitter and Facebook. Te first thing I need to do tomorrow is star working on my portfolio. I have a portfolio but I made it in college as a class assignment, I don’t really think that would get me any clients.
Here is a link to my old portfolio but I will make a new one: https://mariacristinasanfeliu.wordpress.com/
I think I have some pretty good stuff, let’s see if that can be enough to land me a freelance job.

I’m an aspiring writer still looking for exactly what I want to write about, with a lot of creativity, imagination and desire to write.
I studied Writing and Rhetoric at Syracuse University where I explored many different sides of writing through my classes and extracurricular activities in order to narrow my search for an identity as a writer.
I have written for Citrus TV Noticias and La Voz magazine, both of which gave me the chance to explore different mediums in which to write in. Through Citrus TV Noticias I also gained experience in translating from English to Spanish and vice versa, which is also something that I would be interested in working on since I am fluent in both of these languages. I was also an intern at Syracuse University Press where I got hands on experience in what goes into actually editing and publishing a book.
Through out the last four years I have faced a lot of challenges, which helped chape the person I am today. After being in a tragic car accident, being in comma, having a Traumatic Brain Injury, and being in therapy for over a year, I am a new me, willing to face challenges and knowing how to deal with them. I want to write about my accident and life after it to help others, show them it can be done and help in any way I can.
