About This Class

The world of freelancing can be intimidating and confusing. It doesn’t matter if you’re an established writer or a newbie– starting your independent writing career is complicated. That is, unless you sign up for this course.

Whether your goal is to become a full-time freelancer, or simply want some extra money on the side, this course is for you. Why? It’s taught by me, a woman who covered rent and all of her expenses from freelancing.... within her first month on the job.

Do you have questions? I have answers. This class will cover a lot of the roadblocks that you’ll face when starting out: How do I think of ideas? Where can I find a writing community? What does a great pitch look like? 

You deserve to be your own boss. Get your typing fingers ready! If you get stuck, you can always email me at [email protected]
