Expenses pay off
Expenses sprang into prominence during the last instance of the NUJ's Pitch & Deal training day for freelances. "You mean," exclaimed one of the participants as the tutors were outlining what might go into a deal, "I could charge expenses?" To spend a day role- playing and learning how better to Pitch & Deal, sign up for the next course, on Friday 24 April. NUJ members pay £90, a £40 saving on the full cost, and students and first-year members only £67. See www.nujtraining .org.uk or call 020 7843 3717.
