Freelancers, unite!

One of our own, Kathy Kehrli of Screw You!, is getting screwed by a client named Madelyn Wattigney. The woman hired Kathy to "finesse" a press release and never paid her for it. The story has even made it into WriterWeekly.com's Whispers and Warnings.

Kathy recently tracked down Madelyn Wattigney online. She left a comment on her client's blog — a blog, of all things, about her activities for charity — and asked us all to do the same. I'm asking all my readers to head over there and leave her a comment urging her to pay up. If the freelance writing community gets together on this, I bet we can get results!
