Writers who want to freelance are sometimes confused by the fact that
they are not employees but business people or independent contractors
who must view the gig quite differently than if they were in the employ of someone.

For an update in what is happening in journalism education read this substantial article.
"Broadly, each of these programs, and many existing ones, emphasize the need to focus on interdisciplinary collaboration, train students for the next generation of media outlets, prepare them with the necessary background in ethics and practice, and decouple journalism from any particular medium — ideally, to train journalists who can, if needed, write for the Web in the morning, deliver a TV report in the evening and produce multimedia, interactive projects in the meantime."
How about the state of freelance writing in Malaysia?
