About This Class


One of the questions I hear so often from new freelance writers is:

“How do I get writing gigs if I don’t have any clips? And how do I get clips if I can’t get any gigs?”

It seems like a catch 22, but you can overcome this obstacle and create an amazing portfolio by following the guidance of this class.

This is the same technique I used to create a portfolio that helped me snag big name clients such as MTV, CBS, eBay, Zappos, Yellow Pages and many more.

The class will cover how to create fresh clips, even without a gig and how to organize a beautiful portfolio...for free.
