Everyone who works in a creative field, or wants to, should subscribe to the monthly newsletter Three Cents. In each issue, writer and editor Manjula Martin writes three brief essays and lists some well-curated links about creative work. It’s helpful for learning industry norms and expectations, and it’s a great way for freelancers and work-from-home creatives to feel less isolated.
