Zachary Petit (better known out of print as Zac Petit) is a journalist / magazine editor / photo dabbler / lover of all things writerly, design-ish and nerd-like. 


The Essential Guide to Freelance Writing: How to Write, Work & Thrive On Your Own Terms (as seen/heard on the The great Grammar Girl's podcast) is out! Snag a copy and embark on a literary path that is uniquely yours. (And if you want something really special, pick up a signed edition here.)

HOW Design Live takes place in Atlanta May 19–23. Stop by the HOW+PRINT magazine booth and say hi. (Let's have a cocktail.)

The Writer's Digest Conference takes place Aug. 12–14 in New York City. Jennifer Keishen Armstrong and I will be doing a (likely blunt! likely funny!) session on What Magazine Editors Won't Tell You, But We Will, and I'll also be hosting a panel on The Seven (or So) Habits of Highly Effective Social Media Stars featuring Oliver Jeffers, Jessica Sinsheimer, Dana Schwartz and Jordan Rosenfeld. (Let's have a cocktail there, too.) [older news]
