Erik Sherman

Complex ideas elegantly expressed

"Erik spoke to our students about the business of freelancing and dissected an article contract for them. He was great to work with: prompt, thorough and no-nonsense. One student likened him to a Talmudic scholar! We hope he'll visit us again."

"Erik is a rarity in business journalism because he has actually worked in business. That gives him  keen insight into how business really works--or doesn't work."

“Erik Sherman has been a speaker and has organized workshops at the last three ASJA conferences. His presentations have helped audiences understand the complex world of publishing contracts, learn how things work at America's most prestigious publications, and even improve their time management skills. His sessions have consistently been a hit with our audience and it's been a pleasure to work with him every time.”
