Part of the joy of being a freelance journalist is that you get full reign to cover your story the way you want to.

You could, for instance, decide to focus on solutions journalism; rigorous reporting on what works rather than just focusing on the problems.

Not to worry. Freelance journalist Laura Oliver, together with the European Journalism Centre's Freelance Journalism Assembly, covers all you need to know in one downloadable PDF document.
