Insurance is about managing your risk. If you just wanted a commercial liability policy it would not cost very much and maybe put your mind at ease. That being said it is not a requirement as far as I know in your line of work, unless it is required by the outlet that is publishing your work. You may fall under their liability policy. I would give them a call and see if I were you. I guess it depends on what sector you will be published in and the chances of being part of a lawsuit due to something you wrote.
