    Every Tuesday we send out the MedComms Networking email newsletter to subscribers. It includes brief commentary on what we're doing and planning, and highlights relevant news to encourage sharing of information, experiences and ideas and to stimulate discussion. The text and links included below, by definition, were accurate on the day of publication, but may then become outdated.

    MedComms Networking - 21 February 2017


    First a big shout out to all freelancers reading this. Or anyone thinking they might want to freelance. Our next workshop for freelancers is now open to everyone on 22 March, in Macclesfield. It's entirely free of charge for all and you don't even need to subscribe to the MedComms Workbook. I've increased capacity a little but there's still only limited space so sign up quickly. A number of people have asked about events for wannabe freelancers and this meeting would certainly answer a lot of questions.

    Talking of wannabe freelancers, you'll find new articles and a couple of audio interviews now posted in the Freelance Life section of the MedComms Workbook web site, with useful insights and guidance. There's more coming but tell me what else will help and I'll sort it.

    Meanwhile, as an aside, subscribers to the MedComms Workbook have received 124 work opportunities over the last 12 months and it looks like two more will go shortly. The service does work, despite being so stupidly simple. Take a look if you need MedComms freelance support and, for you, it's entirely free of charge.

    It's also great to see some freelancers taking the initiative and organising local informal gatherings. More often now, remote home workers are welcomed as well. If you can get to Harrow-on-the-Hill this Thursday night contact Corinne Swainger, or Leeds on 3 March talk to Fiona Weston or Sevenoaks in Kent on 15 March contact Jane Tricker. All such gatherings I know of are listed at and below in this newsletter. It would be great to see more. And not just in the UK.

    Meanwhile, as you'll know I do as much as I can to reach out to wannabe MedComms specialists via our service at (just one year old this week!) and a core element is our annual MedComms Careers Guide, From academic to medical writer: A guide to getting started in medical communications. The 2017 edition is nearly sorted and will be published next month. We've space for just one or two more agencies in the Directory but it really is a case of first come first served now. Give me a shout.

    March is very busy now so please check up-to-date details of all events at and below in this newsletter. Importantly:

    1 - we have four Lunch and Learns with Concise, talking Event-tech for Pharma. That's next week in Oxford, then New York, followed by Macclesfield and ending in San Francisco.

    2 - we're meeting with Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) in London on 15 March

    3 - to continue building the international activity, the next meeting in Berlin will be 17 March, supported again by Stgilesmedical.

    Please join in. Clearly I can't be everywhere but that doesn't matter. What we need is more people in MedComms around the world taking the initiative and running with their own ideas. Let me know and I'll always do all I can to support you.

    Enjoy your week. Stay in touch.
