What FLX Says
Many of the first reports about the crash of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 in remote Ukraine farmland came from freelancers. Noah Snider, reporting for CNN won praise from Anderson Cooper, who tweeted: "Great job by @NoahSneider describing crash site. Sensitively reported."
Freelance photojournalist Filip Warwick, based in the Ukraine, arrived at the scene before there were even separatist soldiers. He reported on the gruesome scene for the Sydney World Herald in Australia.
"It's a very grim sight out there," he told readers. "So many bodies are beyond recognition, and then there are one or two with barely a scratch and then other cases just bones."

"I really lucked out last issue (Op-Eds). Had just written a hard-to-place essay. The market info for the op-eds was so detailed and helpful that i knew at a glance which newspaper might be a good bet. Sent it that day and sold it. Broke into a new market I've been hoping for, too.

"Once again, FLX came through (and in record time). I found (and interviewed) a source this afternoon. Thanks to everyone who offered to help!" -Jodi Helmer
