Meet our guest speaker for JUMPSTART YOUR FREELANCE WRITING CAREER (2017)

Irish Dizon

Here’s another good reason to sign up for our flagship workshop, “Jumpstart Your Freelance Writing Career” — our guest speaker will be none other than Irish Christianne Dizon!

Irish is a 30-year-old freelance writer and editor from Pasay City. She took up Integrated Marketing Communications at the University of Asia & The Pacific—because she didn’t know what she wanted to be when she grew up. She never expected to end up writing for a living. In fact, before becoming the editor-in-chief of Team Real: Your All-Access Pass Into James Reid & Nadine Lustre’s World; before becoming a contributing editor for The Philippine Star Supreme, she floated from one unrelated job to another. i.e., associate at Kumon, marketing executive at BreadTalk, learning specialist at IBM, and finally, as the associate lifestyle and entertainment editor for Cosmopolitan magazine.

You can read her stuff in magazine like Preview, Good Housekeeping, Rogue, Candy, and Chalk, as well as on websites like Spot.ph and Stylebible.ph. Her writing style is straightforward, and she has a penchant for profiling figures people love to hate (i.e. Mocha Uson).

When she’s not beating a deadline, she’s most likely reading, listening and dancing to hiphop, watching the latest Filipino movie in cinemas, or raising hell on Twitter.
