Can I make a living as a professional writer? If I already do, can I write more of what I want … and still pay the bills?
Yes, yes, and yes. There are more ways to create content for a living than most people realize. This course identifies the options, details the business and craft of professional writing, and — most importantly — affirms that you really do know enough to start now. This course is for all writing levels, from new entrants to experienced professional writers looking for more. Bring a writing goal and let’s use our four weeks to draft content and create a plan — including how to prospect — that feels achievable.
