Episode 1. How one freelance content writer straddles two continents: Interview with Ruthie Wyshogrod
Today’s guest is Ruthie Wyshogrod, a freelance content writer and the founder of Jiri Content Strategy and Writing, living in Israel.

I’ll be posting a series of news roundups in the coming weeks and months to keep people updated on the latest, both for freelancers in general and for freelancers in specific fields.
