Edinburgh Freelance Fridays is a monthly night arranged by local freelancer Emily Dodd and held at Sofi’s Bar in Leith. I’ve been along to a few of them and always had a good time.
It’s an informal social gathering which is open for anyone who freelances whether full or part-time. In the video below, a short extract from the Ditch the Day Job Diaries Episode 7, Emily talks about how the idea came about.
This week I will be hosting the event from 5:30pm onwards at Sofi’s so I would love to see you there! Not only that but Sofi’s will very generously be giving away a free Tunnock’s Teacake to anyone who tweets about the event and uses the hashtag #edff and mentions @sofisbar in the tweet. And don’t worry, Emily will still be attending – she’ll be along a little later on.
If you’ve been before and enjoyed it you could tweet about the event beforehand (hint retweeting this post counts but don’t forget the hashtag and to mention @sofisbar), or if you’re there and having a good time you could tweet on the night. Either way, you will get a tasty treat 🙂
For more details see Emily’s blog. She has also interviewed a number of local freelancers, some of whom are regulars at the event.
