Words of wisdom from @annfriedman

Capture

This morning we had Ann Friedman speak to a bunch of us at Ada’s List. Ann used to be the Executive Editor of GOOD, and is a freelance journalist who has written for NYmag.com, The New Republic, The New Yorker, The Guardian, The Hairpin, and Columbia Journalism Review amongst others.

There’s a Storify of the morning here, but I also wanted to separately share the links Ann referred to as I think they are all worth knowing (or re-familiarising ourselves with):
