For some of us, the days are getting colder and the crisp fresh air prepares us for the upcoming winter. While for others, you may have seen an increase in tourists and you are continuing to bask in the warmth of sunshine. For all of us the anticipation of the holidays are looming and 2019 is right around the corner! November is centered around gratitude, family and acknowledgment. So this month we want to thank you, Newsela Contributors, for all of the hard work you put into every task. We surely could not unlock the written word for everyone without you! We appreciate all of your effort, patience and feedback as we learn more about how we can help you in the future.
To help show our appreciation, once a month we will be posting helpful freelance resources and tools. Some tools are meant to focus on community while others are beneficial for time management. We will also be featuring resources that concentrate on writing, communication and more. If there is a tool that you have been using and really want to share with the rest of the Newsela Contributor community, please feel free to email more information to Emily Luck and Mariya Lebedeva. We hope that these posts will be valuable and supportive for all of your work.
