In short, here's what I adhere to:

* Use a good-sized (11 x 17ish) graphic-designer-type black portfolio
* No more than 10 - 12 pieces
* The pieces should each display a page (the most impressive) from a given
project. It's okay to display two or three pieces from the same project, as
they as they're distinctive and display different aspects of your work.
* The pieces should be sorted so that the most impressive and relevant work
occurs near the end (arts editorials and newsletters near the front).
* I use little flags or stickies to lead the reader through the portfolio,
pointing out particular elements I developed (page design, effectiveness of
step-by-steps, etc.) or related successes or comments on the project.
* The reader is likely the skim your portfolio - it needs to look sharp,
coherent and enticing.

If I can find them, I have a couple of excellent articles on portfolios,
which I could probably fax to you, or at least find a good on-line version.
I'll have a look when I get a chance. Hope that helps. DB.

Thank you for all your great suggestions. I have some new ideas to try
and I feel like I will be making some constructive efforts towards my goal.
It's a great feeling.

I do have a question about portfolios. Does anyone have any suggestions
about constructing one for a newbie? I do have writing samples but
wondered how to present each one. Is there a suggested format? How many
samples do you include, how long are each of the samples?
