You’re a wonderful gem and I can’t wait to guide you through the next steps in your freelance writing life…
Freelance writing changed my life. Is it always a dream job? No. But I get to put myself out there, get paid to write, and have had so many incredible opportunities stem from my choice to write a spec article about bad video game movies.
It’s not easy. There are ups and downs and insecurities that come from every creative career. But freelance writing is much easier than working as a theater manager and having people treat me like garbage. Or running around NYC from job to job just barely scraping by. Or working retail, hating my life, and knowing my work meant absolutely nothing.
With writing, my work never felt worthless. Even when I wrote for Snooki’s blog, I still made something, had my name on it, and maybe it cheered up someone’s day. The hard work was worth that creative satisfaction. So in that way, freelance writing is much easier than all my former side jobs.
In the past year, I’ve worked with over 200 students and proudly watched as they were published in Huffington Post, Vulture, Buzzfeed, Thrillist, Eater, Business Insider, The Girlfriend, and more.
If you choose to work with me over the course of this class, I promise you’ll be amazed by what you can accomplish. I’d love to say I’d change your life, but I’m not made of magic. But you will be so much more confident in your writing skills and shocked by the amount of opportunities out there.
Hope to see you in Freelance Writing for Creatives. Can’t wait to see what you write.
