Freelance Writer: Travels and Conference

Mahesh Raj Mohan

Mahesh Raj Mohan

I am a full-time Portland freelance copywriter, editor, and content marketing specialist. I help companies with white papers, case studies, technical writing, product copy, and more.

One of the benefits of being a freelance writer is a flexible schedule.  Living near Portland places me far away from my family (immediate, extended, and in-laws).  Visits and travels are part of my yearly plans with my wife Sara.   In May, my in-laws visited us, in June I visited my immediate family in Oklahoma, and at the end of July, I visited family in Canada.  So we’re about traveled out right now!

On another note, during July, I learned a month ago that my screenplay, “Indian Errand Day,” placed second in the Willamette Writers Kay Snow Contest.  I was scheduled to attend the Willamette Writers annual conference on August 6 anyway, so this was a wonderful bonus.

The last time I won a solo award, I was about 13 years old! (although I did win one with Niall Harrison a few years back).

When I go to conventions or conferences, I’m usually a little tense.  This time I was pretty relaxed all the way through and met a lot of other writers and enjoyed the panels.  The banquet was a lot of fun, too.

I’ll give a fuller report at some point in the future, but I just wanted to check in and say hello.

How has your summer been?   Have you traveled, taken a staycation, or attended a conference?

  1. What i do not realize is actually how you are not really much more well-liked than you may be right now. You’re so intelligent. You realize therefore significantly relating to this subject, made me personally consider it from a lot of varied angles. Its like men and women aren’t fascinated unless it is one thing to accomplish with Lady gaga! Your own stuffs nice. Always maintain it up!
