Service Description

After spending four years in book publishing, I went back to school and earned my Master's degree in Magazine, Newspaper and Online Journalism at Syracuse University. I'm young, well educated, professionally trained, and trying to establish a freelance career. I run a blog called "Poor Nina's Almanac," which gives frugality advice for young, poor, educated people like me. You can check out my work at http://poornina.wordpress.com.
