New Avenues in Journalism will bring together media innovators to coach freelancers about custom content, new publishing models, crowd, funding, venture capital, grants and fellowships and other sources of income.

A Client Connections event will match journalists to potential clients and literary agents one-on-one for 10-minute sessions.

Sponsored by the American Society of Journalists and Authors (ASJA), San Francisco State University (SFSU) Journalism Department and ONA, the conference will take place Oct. 10-11, 2014 at SFSU.

Keynoter and preeminent tech journalist Kara Swisher is the former co-host of AllThingsD. She will give her view of the shifting world of independent journalism in her address. Swisher recently embarked in her own entrepreneurial venture as co-CEO of the tech blog Re/code.

Much of the meeting will address the burgeoning field of custom content — journalistic articles commissioned to support products and services. Other speakers will discuss how writers can secure funding from investors, foundations and philanthropists; successfully act as their own publishers; and sell merchandise and consulting as auxiliary income.

Admission is $195 for Friday only and $290 for both days. It includes an informal lunch and a wine reception Friday. Members of this group who register by Sept. 23 will receive a discount of $45 off each day they attend. To register with the discount please visit:
