SWMS Editorial Teleconference: Michael Fitzgerald, freelancer

Michael Fitzgerald
Freelancer
June 2009

Thoughtful and articulate, Michael Fitzgerald is a kind of journalist that journalism cannot survive without. He is a storyteller, who ties together disparate elements to engage and entertain a casual reader. As a freelancer, Michael did well in 2008. But publications keep missing their ad page forecasts, and editors are starting to accumulate pieces that they've purchased but have no room to run -- at least in print. PR pros have a vested interest in heeding Michael's words and helping him -- and all storytellers -- to be successful.
