About the workshop

Freelance writing isn't just about great writing. You can make it even if you're just an adequate writer. However, you definitely won't make it if you don't figure out how to pitch or get paid, and even if you figure those things out, you'll probably struggle if you try and do it all by yourself. This workshop will help you make an informed decision. Here’s what you will learn: 

  • Factors to consider before you quit your job for freelance gigs

  • Pitching your ideas
    – How to think about ideas
    – Finding places to publish
    – Mastering cold emailing and calling
  • Getting paid
    – Figuring out the right price for your work
    – How to negotiate and be shameless
    – Cracking accounting/taxation
  • Building connections: The secret sauce to success
