5b2c033f4488b3000926e2ba-original.gif, the online professional skills outlet for writers, recently introduced a new service for its visitors: a Freelance Marketplace where new or seasoned journalists display their talents for sale. Interestingly, in the current database of 29 writers residing in California, more writers live in Los Angeles than San Francisco. Eighteen live in Southern California while ten live in Northern California. One writer lives in Dobbins, CA and LAist is too tired to track down a map.

Angeleno Dennis Nishi wrote our favorite Personal/Professional Overview:
“ Dennis goes far beyond LexisNexis to get inside his story. Although he seems like a mild-mannered business writer and illustrator, Dennis has shaved his head and learned horse archery for a movie (see above), infiltrated a communist party cell and swam with sharks and survived--articles forthcoming. Of course, the latter will never be repeated again but it makes a good story in hindsight.”

Oh, all right, Dobbins is here. One point for Slytherin, er, Northern California.
